Here’s a list of the Senators who voted against the nomination of John Roberts today. If they are waiting for a more qualified nominee, they won’t get one. Roberts, after all, has had a stellar legal career and has argued nearly 40 cases before the Supreme Court, a staggering amount.
Recall the following confirmation vote counts:
John Paul Stevens, 1975: 98-0
Sandra Day O’Connor, 1981: 99-0
Antonin Scalia, 1986: 98-0
Anthony Kennedy, 1987: 97-0
Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 1993: 96-3
Stephen Breyer, 1994: 87-9
Shame on these Senators — a few Presidential candidates past and future among them — for shamelessly kowtowing rather than putting partisanship aside and focusing instead on his impressive qualifications. In so doing, they have started down a most dangerous road. If you live in one of these states, you should tell them you don’t appreciate it.
