Preemptive strike against SCOTUS nominee

Yeah, I am guessing that this will be a nice quiet confirmation process, well, until a name gets named. PFAW is already circulating a fundraiser to block any Bush nominee, and they don't have the slightest clue who it will be.

We hope President Bush will select a consensus nominee after consulting Senators from both political parties, but given his track record, the odds are good that he will nominate someone who threatens our rights and liberties — in which case you and PFAW will have to mount a tireless campaign this summer to keep that nominee from being confirmed by the US Senate.

So, PFAW opposes anyone Bush nominates. How does anyone donate to this group? Isn't this a "preemptive strike" against a potential nominee? I thought leftists hated preemptive strikes?
