232. "my opinion of her"
Edited on Wed May-27-09 10:06 AM by GreenArrow
Actually, I said I didn't know enough about her to offer an opinion. I'll probably wait until her confirmation hearings to do so. From what I have seen, she seems rather moderate, with perhaps a slight leftward lean. Unless it's a Robert Bork clone, the pubs aren't going to like anyone Obama picks, but a moderate will prove easier to confirm. This President hasn't shown that he's yet willing to make bold picks, so based on his previous picks -- a perfectly reasonable gauge -- I think it's a safe assumption that he sees her as a safe pick. If she gets confirmed, we'll all see how she does. Souter certainly ended up being a lot better than expected.

As for "friends like me," no President -- or any other politician for that matter -- has my blanket, unquestioning support. My allegiances are a little broader than that.
