Dems’ Work Just Got Harder

As the AP reports:

Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito received a unanimous well-qualified rating from the American Bar Association on Wednesday, giving his nomination momentum as the Senate prepares for confirmation hearings next week.

It’s nice that the ABA embraced the obvious. But in the past, Democrats have called ABA ratings the "gold standard." And the ABA’s announcement makes it that much more difficult for the Democrats to justify mistreating the nominee or mounting a filibuster. That’s not to say that the Dems won’t do it anyway. But if anyone in the Democrat brain trust thought obstructing Judge Alito’s confirmation was a good idea, the ABA has provided yet more evidence that such a plan is pure folly.
