CNN.com - Kerry will try Alito filibuster - Jan 26, 2006
According to the article Kerry states:
"Judge Alito's confirmation would be an ideological coup on the Supreme Court," Kerry said in a written statement explaining his support for a filibuster.
"We can't afford to see the court's swing vote, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, replaced with a far-right ideologue like Samuel Alito."
So while the liberal court is imperiled by a far-right coup attempt where is Kerry? Doing the people's business in.... Davos?
Wonder which 'People's' business he's tending?
