    Default McCain will cast "NO" vote for Sotomayor

    Certainly not the first time Senator John McCain has made a poor decision...
    Your ignorance is painful to witness.....

    It's all political now, the days when a pick will get a lot of votes from members of the otherside ended with Alito.

    You're right. He should abstain from voting all together.

    With Alito there was nothing, not a single thing, outside of politics, which should have kept him from being voted in, and yet the vote was close. Roberts was every bit as conservative, and going for Chief Justice even, and got lots of votes. As did Clintons picks. With Alito - a qualified pick with as stellar record - as with Sotomayor - another qualified pick with a stellar record - it is apparent now that it is partisan from hear on out.

    On a side not; Obama can pick a judge as liberal as he wants from here on out. As long as they are qualified, he knows he has the votes, they can just avoid the questions (like legal people are so good at), and get in. The process from Alito forward is basically that cynical.

    Sorry...but it goes much farther back than Alito. It goes back to Bork.

    Bork was the kindling but the fire didn't get going until later as shown by later liberal and conservative picks getting voted in by huge majorities after Bork
