    I couldn’t make any sense of Heilemann’s “war on women” comment. I’m think – maybe – he was referring to McCain and Graham, saying that they enlisted Ayotte because they wanted to appear more woman-friendly after the election. They don’t want it to be 3 men trying to tear down Rice.

    I think the primary reason they’re trying to destroy Rice is that they want to force a special election in Massachusetts. If Rice is deemed unconfirmable, everyone expects Obama to then select John Kerry. Republicans love this because because if Kerry vacates his senate seat, they think Scott Brown has a decent chance of swooping in and picking it up.

    This doesn’t seem likely, though, and I have to give Scarborough credit for trying to explain the obvious to his party: this is a losing strategy.
