I wanted to share some thoughts, hopefully some insights, on the jagged and rapid unfolding events today on the Kavanaugh nomination.
1. The smart people I talk to are fairly confident, or at least they were this afternoon, that in the end Senate Republicans will be able to push Kavanaugh through. I’m not sure they’re right. The situation has been changed dramatically in the 30 hours or so since the Post published Professor Ford’s account along with additional details which tend to bolster her credility.
