  •  Rehquist is coming, within months (4.00)
    I think he's holding out to make it easier for them to move the court rightward. One guy at a time, or it becomes too easy to get into a negotiated, "one for us, one for you" situation. They want two right wing seats, not one.

    So if we fight this one hard, will it make it harder to fight the next one hard? Will we exceed the public appetite for skepticism and concern about Roe, etc. if we challenge both hard? Or can we make more hay on the next one by being supremely reasonable on this one?

    Seems to me we want to be prudent and thorough but not negative, and avoid the MoveOn all-out effort to block.

    This sets us up better for the next one. There's no way Rehnquist is serving a full term. The guy is 80, with a very, very serious cancer. He's protecting "his" Court by holding out.
