Good Advice On Judges

Nicholas Kristof is giving Democrats advice on how to return to being a majority party. His best advice relates to the appointment of judges:
Hold your nose and work with President Bush as much as you can because it's lethal to be portrayed as obstructionists. Sure, block another Clarence Thomas, but here's a rule of thumb: if an otherwise qualified Supreme Court nominee would turn the clock back 10 years, approve; back 25 years, vote no; back a half-century, filibuster.
Common sense as far as I'm concerned.
