Warm Fuzzies

Via The Washington Times:
Democrats said yesterday that Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr.'s confirmation is not guaranteed as senators kept the focus on a 20-year-old document in which the Supreme Court nominee asserted that the Constitution "does not protect a right to an abortion."

"Even at this early stage, I have a number of significant concerns," Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said yesterday.

Among the Nevada Democrat's concerns were that Democrats weren't consulted on the nomination, as well as Judge Alito's 20-year-old claim to be a conservative.
The fact that Harry Reid has some "significant concerns" about Judge Alito should give conservatives a lot to be happy about. Any nominee that doesn't sit well with Harry Reid is probably a good one for Republicans, and while the top Dems have begun to offer tough rhetoric about fighting Alito's confirmation, they only do it in order to satisfy their extreme left base.

Their is no reason for GOPers to be worried. As I noted when he was nominated, Alito should get confirmed regardless of what the left does.
