    Some suspect that she was just a pretend candidate - so obviously unqualified (she's never been a judge!) that she was just used to soften people up so the real candidate will look good.

    Great observation.

    I feel a bit sorry for her. How would you like to be "the Supreme Court nominee who never made it to the hearings." Kind of hard to hold your head up after that, and it wasn't her doing.

    Oh well, women are strong.....
