Expect Specter to Influence Judiciary

Just a quick thought today. We have got to do something about these country club republicans who today unanimously supported Specter for the chair of the judiciary committee. He may not overtly oppose nominees, but you can be sure that signals will be sent to Bush on who he will ultimately "announce" as his picks. The easy route would have been to kill his chairmanship. Who cares if he opposes on the committee or on the floor? We have the votes anyway. More on this later.
