Why Judges Matter for the GOP

Whether they know it or not, the GOP's election prospects ride on whether they do what it takes to get Bush's judges confirmed. I frankly don't like the filibuster option, but at the end of the day, the GOP has been unwilling or unable to make the public case for the nominees to be confirmed without the filibuster.

Hugh Hewitt provides an excellent speech a Republican senator could and should deliver to his caucus about the importance of confirming Bush's judicial nominees to the Republican base, conservatives in particular. If they drop the ball here, it will take a long time for them to regain the support of middle-class social conservatives, who are already suspicious the drunk- with-power GOP is a pawn of corporations and agri-business (which don't like the filibuster).

If a senator has the guts to give a speech like this, he will instantly become a standard-bearer and hero of conservatives. Norm Coleman, is that you?????
