I’m so not defending McCain, but I think there’s ample reason to believe the Left is ticked. As one Senate staffer told me this morning, for some folks on the other side of the aisle, having Priscilla Owen or Bill Pryor on the bench is Hillary on the Supreme Court would be for the Right. The Left invested a lot in hating and defeating these people. As bad as the deal may be, the Left is ticked, too. That doesn’t necessarily make the deal any better, but it’s not a total victory on their side either.
