Now we are getting somewhere: Alito's wife broke down and cried yesterday. Massive fingerpointing has resulted. Actually this means that we are getting no where. Really this stuff should be about Alito and the type of judge he will be. The fact is, that kind of judge isn't very popular. Striking down Roe is rather unpopular. So Alito, despite being on record as saying Roe is a bad ruling, has to dance around. The Democrates try and play "pin the view on the judge." Then the whole thing comes down to a vote and the GOP has more votes.
