213. The nomination is his call and the likelihood is that a Democratic Senate will
Edited on Tue May-26-09 06:26 PM by No Elephants
back a Democratic President, whether the POTUS nominates a centrist or a liberal. He'd probably have to nominate another Thomas before they'd buck him--and maybe not even then. It's just the reality of the situation.

By the same token, all that has happened is a nomination that is 100% Obama's call. Why are you trying to relieve him of responsibility for that?
