Feingold might have screwed himself
Feingold better hope this doesn't come back to bite him the ass, in 2008. This might have screwed his chances. People will probably say Bayh voted no, because of his chances in 08, but he did say numerous times that he wasn't satisfied with the amount of information that Roberts failed to disclose during the hearings. I'm very ashamed of the 22 that voted yes, and I wish they would grow some fricking balls. Not surprised with Lieberman.

This is not a failure of individual Dems it is an utter failure of the entire Democratic Party

All Judicial Powers Based On Political Neutrality
Whenever a judge or judicial panel makes a precedent setting decision, that decision is null and void if it is not confirmed by an independent panel of at least 12 randomly chosen, unselected, citizen jurors. Judicial precedents remain in effect for no longer than 10 years. Any other policy is obviously an insane invitation to political corruption.
