Re: Leahy’s Suggestion


Kathryn — Senator Leahy was projecting.  The reason he and so many other Senate Democrats blogged Miguel Estrada’s nomination to the D.C. Circuit was that they were afraid he would become the first Hispanic nominee to the Supreme Court.  [Okay, so the comment came before Estrada's nomination -- so Leahy was indicating what he would do were the shoe on the other foot, and when the opportunity arose, he did just that.]
