For those who are wondering, the reason, in my mind, why a filibuster of this Supreme Court nom would torpedo Democratic hopes in '08 had little to do with abortion; it had everything to do with a sense of fair play which Americans enshrine before all else. If the Republicans had played the card right, the claim could have been made that the Democrats are simply "haters" who can't come up with their own devices and strategies. So Reid and others who said, "NO!" to filibuster had this in mind I suspect.
