Thank goodness the Cavanaugh confirmation hearings are finally over. All of the Democrats’ attempts to derail the nomination have failed. All the hoopla accomplished nothing. Republicans were not going to vote against Kavanaugh when there was no corroborating evidence to support the charges against him.
Obviously this is a bitter pill for Democrats to swallow. However, they should realize that this battle is over. They should focus on the upcoming elections. Much of their response comes from anger. Some groups talk about harassing public officials. Some congressmen have talked about impeaching Kavanaugh. Other tell people to use their anger to vote Democratic. There’s just one problem. All those that are angry are already voting Democratic.
People need positive reasons to vote for a candidate. Gaining power to get political retribution is not enough. They didn’t have a compelling story in 2016 and are showing few signs of developing one this year.
