…that the gist of the aforementioned statement is what is coming out of Reid’s office. And that they’re saying: Hearings start Monday. Dems can delay commitee vote to the 24th from the 17th.

Personally, I really want Alito confirmed before the Roe anniversary on the 22nd. That’s just me being obnoxious though. The real reason to vote as sheduled is because that is the schedule. Justice O’Connor deserves to retire. Alito deserves to get seated. Let’s get on with it already. And done with.

And then another justice can retire and the president can nominate Paul Clement.
