Is Diane Feinstein the Democrat's Next Joe Lieberman?

19 November 2007 at 12:44:12 PM

Well, THAT is a scary thought, but after reading the kinds of actions she has taken lately....

Paul Kane who blogs for The Washington Post poses the relevant question: "Is Feinstein the Democrats' Next Lieberman?" It started me thinking that she has recently taken a series of positions that don't seem to square with the sentiment of the voters of her own state of California.

First off, I have already noted in this column that she voted to confirm Judge Leslie Southwick, a Mississippi conservative, for the open seat on the 5th Circuit Federal bench, something I'm not sure that, if put to a vote, would be approved of by her constituents.

In doing so, she was praised by Republican Senator Arlen Specter as "courageous" and Senator Trent Lott got choked up talking about her vote. She also received a congratulatory phone call from Bush. All in the family?

Then comes Feinstein's support for Michael Mukasey to be the new Attorney General, breaking ranks for other Democrats and assuring that her vote and that of Charles Schumer will confirm Mukasey as the next Attorney General. Her reason that Bush would not likely nominate a better choice pales in the face of Mukasey's reticence to define "waterboarding" as torture, setting up the proposition that he would defend an unconstitutional practice for Bush.
