Money quote from today’s “Beware Of Alito” editorial in the NYT:

As the Democrats refine their message for next year’s elections, the first thing they need to be able to say to the American people is that they did not sit by idly while the far right took over the Supreme Court and began dismantling fundamental rights and freedoms.

This is true not only of judicial nominations, but all Republican policies. I would hope that the Iraqi invasion has taught the Democrats just how difficult and awkward it is to criticize a policy or nominee after you’ve voted in favor of it.

It’s entirely possible, perhaps even inevitable, that the Democrats will not win every battle. But that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t even bother to fight them.
