Democrats decry bias on Roberts - Nation/Politics - The Washington Times: "Sen. Ron Wyden, Oregon Democrat, who supports President Bush's nominee for Supreme Court chief justice, said fellow Democrats should not base their votes on the nominee's perceived political beliefs.
'I ask my friends to imagine the mess we will have left for our country if the Senate uses this test and votes solely on the basis of a nominee's political beliefs,' he said yesterday in a speech on the Senate floor. 'Friends who a year ago said we don't want ideologues appointed to the Supreme Court now want Judge Roberts and the next nominee to show up at the witness table and submit to an ideological litmus test.' "
In other words, these politicians do want idealogues...as long as they are leftward idealogues.
