  •  Expected? Sure. But not a win. (4.00)
    Coming out of the nuclear deal, Republicans were claiming that "if people with Owen's, Pryor's and Brown's beliefs aren't 'extraordinary circumstances', then clearly such people cannot be filibustered before the Supreme Court."

    Yes, that's pretty key to the expectation strategy I outlined.

    Yes, Roberts is only "more moderate than expected" and not, in all likelihood, an actual moderate.  But I don't know how we do better.

    Doing no better and no worse than can be expected is not a win. I don't think this is any more or less than that. I'm not saying its a "loss", I'm saying its not accurate to say "we've already won".
