Mark is Right

Mark is right. Fight Alito and fight hard, but use every opportunity to link the scandals. Cheney and Plame is a good one during the Alito fight.

Also, keep in mind that there is still the distinct possibility of other indictments. The Plame issue will come back up, even during the Alito fight, if another indictment comes down. The Democrats need to show that they are willing to fight even if they are not certain about the situation. Refusing to fight on Alito out of fear of loosing the Plame issue and never getting it back is, I believe, exactly the kind of thing which leaves people seeing the Democrats as weak.

Final point on loosing the Plame issue. How many times so far has the Plame issue gone off, and come back on, to the front page. It may well do so again.
