Done Deal, Part 38

The Washington Post comes out in favor of confirming Judge Alito. It finds that “[Alito’s] integrity, notwithstanding efforts to smear him, remains unimpeached.” It finds that “however one reasonably defines the ‘mainstream’ of contemporary jurisprudence, Judge Alito’s work lies within it.” Most of all, the Post realizes the shortcomings and danger of a purely party-line or ideologically-driven voting process when it comes to confirming Justices. Hence, it concludes that “no president should be denied the prerogative of putting a person as qualified as Judge Alito on the Supreme Court.”
Unfortunately, the Senate Democrats are not as prudent as the Washington Post, and I expect them to establish precisely the party-line voting precedent the Post justifably fears.
