Had A President Romney Nominated Kavanaugh, Would Leading Dems Oppose Him?

No. Of course not. Too many folks in Washington think he's such a great guy. And to too many Dems, that would have been enough of a qualification. It's only because there so much activism against Trump right now that the leading Democrats have decided to put up what they know is an all-but-futile fight. Schumer wants my vote.

But regardless of who nominated him, Kavanaugh remains a partisan right-wing activist who has no business being on the Supreme Court. Roe may be the worst thing Kavanaugh's appointment will unravel, but it won't be the last, not by a long shot.

What this points to is that the process of American democracy was seriously broken long before Trump ever announced his candidacy. We need more Ocasio-Cortez's in Washington and fewer old-school Democrats who for too long have prized acceptance inside the Washington club over their country.
