NARAL on The Deal

Confirm Them notes that NARAL likes the deal and is already establishing what counts as "extraordinary circumstances." Sayeth Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL:
[we are] heartened that the crisis has been averted and the right to filibuster preserved for upcoming Supreme Court nominations. We are confident that a Supreme Court nominee who won’t even state a position on Roe v. Wade is the kind of "extraordinary circumstance" this deal envisions.

Well, there we are. If Democratic senators agree with Keenan then we have an answer to whether this was a deal or a capitulation on the part of Senate Republicans.

I'm going to agree with Ms. Keenan. Any nominee who won't state the position that Roe is a perversion of the Constitution and a stain on the nation's jurisprudential fabric is worthy of a filibuster.
