This deal is horrifying. Frist and Bush got most of what they wanted, and it's been admitted that the nuclear option is constitutional. And the Republicans reserve the right to use the nuclear option whenever they want.
Dems lose again.
UPDATE: Bottom line from a Redstate commenter:
"This might (probably) close the door on Saad and Myers (the smearing of them is disgusting), but as those 2 are thrown to the wolves in this deal, let's not lose sight of getting 5 constructionalist appellate judges through and paves the way for Associate Justice Brown (she can't be 'extraordinary' anymore)."
