A good question.

It continues to be possible for Republicans to pull the plug on the nomination of Elena Kagan to the U.S. Supreme Court, according to the chief of an organization that advocates for families and their interests.
Calling her the “most liberal, unconstitutional nominee we’ve ever seen,” Randy Thomasson of SaveCalifornia.com, says Republican senators have the power, even in the minority, to stop Kagan in committee by objecting to the vote or on the Senate floor by leading a filibuster.
The organization also reported that under Senate rules, specifically Rule IV, there also could be a filibuster in committee.
Further, he said if one minority party member objects, the nomination will not come up for a vote if no Republicans vote to override the objection, and if six of seven Republican senators do not show up for the committee, there’s no quorum…
Thomasson said if Republicans are successful in halting Kagan, they will prevent her influence all across American for the next 30 or 40 years.
Her nomination has not only prompted Thomasson to offer constituents a “take action” option on his SaveCalifornia.com site, it also has sparked the assembly of the “Stop Kagan Campaign.”
“We will continue to put every member on notice – Republicans and Democrats – that a vote for Kagan is a vote against the U.S. military, a vote against the Constitution, a vote against free speech and a vote for ultra-partisan extremism and activism on the bench,” said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND who is orchestrating the effort that has generated tens of thousands of individual letters to senators.
Why should thousands of people campaign hard for the GOP, when the party seems intent on giving radical Kagan a free pass?
