You don’t have to marry Judge Roberts, Senator Reid

Senator Harry Reid said that he will vote against the confirmation of Judge John G. Roberts Jr. Why would Senator Reid want to do a thing like that? Apparently, Senator Reid has “too many unanswered questions about the nominee to justify a vote confirming him to this enormously important lifetime position.” You don’t have to marry Judge Roberts, Senator Reid. Does the good Senator from Nevada think the nominees are going to get any better than Judge Roberts? Nonetheless, “confirmation seems very likely despite Mr. Reid’s opposition.” “Mr. Reid could be using his vote to send a message to the White House…. Democrats have insisted that Mr. Bush replace Justice O’Connor with a moderate.” I wonder how Mr. Reid’s constituents in his Republican-leaning State of Nevada feel about his decision to vote against Judge Roberts.

  • It doesn't make sense to me that people would oppose John Roberts's commission. His answers were no more muddled than any of the previous candidates. This sounds like an attempt to get his name in "just in case" Roberts turns out to be something more of a partisan Justice, an "I told you so" quote.

  • Nevadians probably like the pork-barrel spending coming their way via Harry Reid's influence.
