Who says Talking Points is afraid to give himself a well-deserved pat on the back?
Last week Talking Points predicted that Senate Democrats with visions of White Houses in their future might start giving second thoughts to giving an easy ride to Attorney General nominee John Ashcroft.
And boy was he right!
Last week Joe Biden said he was inclined to vote for Ashcroft; yesterday he said he may oppose him. Biden also questioned why Ashcroft gave interviews to “white supremacist” magazines. “I don’t say he subscribes to what they have to say, but he gives interviews to those magazines,” Biden said on Meet the Press. “It makes a difference, the perception someone is going to project.”
And John Kerry got into the act too. “It is a divisive, not a unifying nomination, and [Bush] has specifically said he is a uniter, not a divider.”
Now let’s hear from John Edwards and Joe Lieberman.
