Instead of being honest with voters about President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Phil Bredesen is playing a game of political duck and cover claiming that he will wait until confirmation hearings conclude before announcing if he’d support Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. It’s time Phil Bredesen put away his political weather vane and let voters know where he stands. Chuck Schumer did.
If his interest in the confirmation hearings is earnest, then he should be up front with voters and let them know what questions he thinks should be asked of Judge Kavanaugh. He should also be honest with voters about what answers to those questions Judge Kavanaugh would need to have in order to win his support. What would make him break with national Democrats and support President Trump’s nominee?
It’s time Phil Bredesen stop reciting the same non-committal talking points, and let Tennessee voters know where he stands on Judge Kavanaugh and future Supreme Court nominees.
