    that Victory is "already" won.

    Victory is attainable in this case, but could still be thrown away.

    You are right, the Dems can take this opportunity to frame the debate.

    But, they also have to avoid the potential pitfalls.

    If, as seems to be expected, after the hearings there just isn't anything to block Roberts with, the Dems have to accept his nomination.

    If a significant number of Senators choose to turn this into a blood bath with nothing to point to, that could hurt the Democrats and give credence to Republican arguments that the Dems are just obstructionist, and that they are controlled by special interest groups.

    A flame rescued from dry wood has no weight in it's luminous flight yet lifts the heavy lid of night.
