I, too, nearly fell out of my chair when I saw the Estrada question on
Jeopardy. More worrisome, though, to me was the fact that none of the
three contestants, whom we must assume are better informed about current
events than the average American voter, were able to identify Estrada. I
assume this was taped prior to the recent filibuster-a-thon, but
nonetheless it makes one wonder whether obstruction of judicial nominees as
an issue is really resonating beyond a VERY small cross section of voters.
