Democrats are responsible for conformation battles

NY Times:

New Reality Looms: Only a Friendly Senate Will Confirm Justices


Senators from both parties have shown increasing reluctance to back otherwise qualified judicial nominees whose views do not align with their party’s.
As long as Democrats see the court as a means for imposing their unpopular agenda on the people, there will be continued friction when it comes to confirmation.  It would not surprise me to see the number of justices shrink through attrition when it looks like a new justice will change the partisan makeup.

Republicans, rightly believe, that liberals want to write the second amendment out of the Consitution and also take away the religious liberty expressed in the first amendment.  Why would they ever agree to an Obama or Clinton appointment with that at stake?
