Dry powder for Supreme Court hearings
I think the Dem leadership is doing the right thing holding off on attacks. It will be better to 'come to the conclusion' that the guy is a tool as a result of the hearings rather than to start out screaming it.

In any case, the Rove story continues to be the more important one...Bush is ultimately going to get someone confirmed to the court, but the ongoing effect of his political downfall on the next congressional elections is of equal, perhaps greater, importance.

1. I agree with this
And the messages coming even from the most "liberal" of Democrats seem to indicate that this is where any opposition will be showing itself.

3. related subject / NARAL
I get a lot of action alerts, and of course, among them, some from NARAL.

i have to say i have been getting more and more uneasy about the words 'pro-choice' and 'anti-choice" to define the difference between the sides. I know it is meant to
reframe the argument away from "pro-life' and, by inference, "anti-life" poles, but after all this time it has begun to sound like one is making a decision about dinner items at Sizzler.

Any ideas about how pro-choice verbiage could be updated with more of a "keep the government out of our lives" slant?

2. I agree
the full ramifications of this Rove scandal could have a lot of effect on the upcoming elections. And I agree that its good our leaders in the Senate are holding off for the moment. It's up to us grassrooters to dig up the dirt and get it out there.
That's why WE should be buzzing about this. Getting the info out about Roberts.
I think though that even if we get lost and forget Rove for a minute it wont matter, it will come smashing back into the headlines again when Fitzgerald goes public.
