More from Sens. Cornyn and DeMint

By December 20, 2005General

Sen. Cornyn: On Alito, I worried about waiting until January 9, because I worried it would leave him hanging out there like a pinata, but it’s hard to run a hate campaign during the Christmas season, and it’s also a testament to the quality of the nominee [that this hasn’t happened]. I expect he’ll be confirmed.

Sen De Mint: They have to dig into 25-year old memos to criticize him. No one seems to be going after the decisions he made on the bench. Unless theres some revelation that comes out in the hearings, I expect he’ll be confirmed.
