    I’m not sure he “won” them. Perhaps the cases were decided on their merits, not on the arguments. And perhaps with a better advocate, the votes would have been more one sided, and slammed the door harder on the nay-sayers, who are now encouraged to continue to try to block progress.

    Or perhaps not. But if you want to represent me (and the other 300 million of us), then you gotta be prepared for kibitzing and second guessing. SG is not a position for a person with thin skin.
