Both Hugh and Glen are wrong, and Miller is right. We are talking about the chairmanship of the Judiciary Committee. It is healthy to oppose Arlen even if we lose. A Supreme Court appointment will produce more heated retoric than Bork. We don't need a recalcitrant Specter getting glowing profiles in Newsweek, Time and the NYTs. Bork was a leading constitutional scholar shamelessly distorted by the MSM and Specter piled on. Magnanimous appeals to 'moderates', 'bipartisan' talk doesn't seem appropriate. Second termers are vunerable 'lame-ducks' , even in less caustic times. Gentlemen, the distortions ahead will be worse than Bush=Hilter and you would have enabled it. Now is not the time to go wobbly.
