Democrats don't want balance anymore

When Sandra Day O'Conner resigned from the Supreme Court, Democratic Senators demanded that President Bush nominate someone who matches O'Conner's ideology and judicial philosophy. They insisted that maintaining "balance" on the Court was more important than anything. More important than reason, ideology, or the intent of the framers of the Constitution.

So where are these Senators now? Why has "balance" suddenly become so much less important? Why are they not demanding that President Bush nominate someone who matches Justice Rehnquist's ideology? If maintaining balance is really so important to them, they should insist just as loudly as they did after O'Conner's resignation that Bush nominate a conservative justice who will interpret the Constitution as it is written.

I'm not holding my breath.
