The story also indicates that Bush is so scared of the tenacity of the Democratic opposition that he has renominated Brett Kavanaugh for membership on the DC Circuit.  (He was one of the nominees left in limbo after the deal last year re preventing the nuclear option.)  If the Dem's aren't willing to filibuster Alito, then what in the world would justify filibustering Kavanaugh (or any other nominee)?  The Republicans didn't have to "go nuclear" against such feckless opponents.
