Bush* was supposed to meet with Democrats before making any nomination
Supposedly Bush* was to get a mutual agreement before even making a nomination. Did bush* meet with Democrats and what Democrats did he meet with and what was their opinion of the Judge roberts? I would be disappointed in any Democrat that said they had no objection to this man after even a cursery examination of his opinions on serious matters. Anyone know who the select Democrats were?

2. Interesting media analysis this morning - Dems advise Bush individually -

Interesting media analysis this morning - Dems advise Bush individually - and were thereby ineffective - 44 egos to feed, but no Democratic Party to be seen.

(from the ABCNote today): "By suggesting that Mr. Bush was giving serious consideration to a woman or minority even if he did not choose one in the end, the White House may have minimized any political repercussions Mr. Bush may have suffered by choosing a man to replace the court's first woman.""Several Democratic aides said their party may have squandered Bush's overture by suggesting a surfeit of possible nominees and responding individually to calls from the West Wing, instead of making one focused argument. The result, these aides said, was that Bush was free to disregard the advice without having to answer for any particular rejection." and "The Los Angeles Times editorial board calls Roberts a "shrewd choice." "Roberts may be more of a chamber of commerce-type than a social conservative with a burning desire to become a judicial activist intent on saving America from itself. He may not be in the mold of Justices Antonin Scalia or Clarence Thomas though we may come to eat those words; check back in a few years."
