    A new CNN poll has revealed numbers that are hardly a ringing endorsement either of President Obama or his nominee to the Supreme Court. Regarding CNN's polling, there is a large disparity between their poll that says 72% feels Obama "inspires confidence" and their poll that shows that only 47% has confidence in his decision to nominate Sotomayor. It calls into question the accuracy of CNN's polling and whether Obama's positive numbers in other polls are skewed.

    When you can ram through huge stimulus spending without even reading the bill, I hardly see public opinion as an issue.

    The other 30% of Democrats believe Sotomayor is far too conservative and an even more radical leftist should be nominated in her place.
    The problem in the next four years will be not just that the president of the United States serially does not tell the truth. Instead, the real crisis in our brave new relativist world will be that those who demonstrate that he is untruthful will themselves be accused of lying. - Victor Davis Hanson

    I'd rather have her sitting in the corner drooling than some evil genius redesigning our country from the bench!

    That's exactly right. The people in power don't give a damn about what the public thinks.

    They do - but only in so far as vote go. They'll do things they think will win them votes - like switch parties . . . . *cough* Spector

    She's on the court, now that Franken has been confirmed. There might be a lot of debate about it, but without a couple of dems crossing over, there's no chance of a filibuster.


    Elections have consequences.

    I think there could well be a couple of dems crossing over. Some of those Blue Dogs are up for reelection this coming year . . . .

    Probably but not necessarily true. Kennedy and Byrd are sick so the Democrats may not be able to count on them. Like Policon stated; some of those Democ. blue dogs are up for re-election. The longer the Repubs drag it out, the better the chances that she will not be confirmed.
