Mind the Left

Glenn Greenwald from Salon was great on ABC's This Week on Sunday.

Especially fine was when he slapped around former White House Counsel Greg Craig for playing defense lawyer and claiming that Elena Kagan is the most qualified nominee to the Supreme Court of his lifetime.
Great stuff. Now, considering that Craig defined Kagan's politics as progressive in the mold of President Obama himself, all Republicans should come out against her confirmation. Alas, it appears they're ready to play along. Any idea why?
