The Washington Times reports on

The Washington Times reports on the battle brewing over the confirmation of Judge Pickering. I have a feeling that this could become a defining moment. The Democrats are issuing apocalyptic pronouncements; Tom Daschle says: “It is surprising to me that the administration, given all the problems that the Republican Party has had in the last few weeks, would act so irresponsibly.” Well, some of us would say that it is the Democrats who have had problems in the last few weeks–i.e., getting clobbered in the midterm elections. But the Democrats seem to have fallen into the old trap of believing their own press clippings. It appears that the Republicans, both in the Administration and in the Senate, are willing to go to bat for Judge Pickering. So let the battle begin. I think this is one we can, and will, win.
