Instead of simply opposing Bush's nomination. Wouldn't it be new and interesting if the Dem's proposed a reasonable conservative? A conservative with all of the bells and whistles. Ivy league college and law school. Clerked with a Supreme. Believes in a small government, support of the environment and women's rights. A conservative with so much credibility, the R's could not oppose him/her. Wouldn't that be something? I'm sorry, just wishful thinking.
