Perplexing

Senator Hillary Clinton announced that she'll oppose Roberts' confirmation to the Court.

Feingold yes, Clinton no? I wouldn't have made that bet in a hundred years.

Well, Sen. Clinton wants to be President Clinton. So, she is appealing to her liberal base. She knows that the ultra liberal wing of the Democratic Party has the money and the votes to make her the Democratic Party nominee. Thus, she will give them what they want. Namely, a no vote on anybody President Bush nominates. I predict she will really get worked up on the next nominee.
This is a good blog. Keep up the good work. Take care.

Yeah it's just odd, in that Clinton's been making centrist noises for the past few years. I guess she's just covering her butt with the left on this. Feingold's certainly ticked off some of the liberal activists who were absolutely drooling over him before, though.

Remember, it is possible for Senators to oppose a nominee on principle. Assumptions about Senator Clinton's motivations are risky. Let's give her the benefit of the doubt.

Perplexing? No. Predictable? Yes.

I don't think she deserves the benefit of the doubt. It's clearly a calculated political move. That's why I really can't ever see myselg voting for her. She can't pretend to be a Centrist most of the time and keep throwing these bones to the rabid leftist base. There's no Centrist principle that would lead one to oppose Roberts confirmation. So either she's being misleading about being a Centrist or she feels no shame in pandering to the the rabid leftist base. Either way, she looks bad to discerning eyes.
