Bonus Quote of the Day

October 31, 2005

Gang-of-14 member Senator Mike DeWine (R-OH): “I can’t believe anyone would believe this is a nominee that could be filibustered or that it would rise to the level of ‘extraordinary circumstances. If someone would filibuster, though, I would be prepared to vote to change the rules.”

DeWine is the second Gang-of-14 member to pledge support for the Constitutional Option if Democrats filibuster Alito. It is highly unlikely that Democrats can pull off a filibuster. Given that, Alito is almost certain to be confirmed.
