Supreme Court

In my opinion this is not getting enough press. This is the "main prize" the dems have their eye on.

“The Supreme Court in a right-wing headlock,” Clinton said in her Tuesday night speech.

The implication was clear for veterans of the Senate battles of the Bush era over Supreme Court nominees: Democrats have waited since 1994 to see one of their own nominated to the high court.

To see the prize of future high court appointments slip out of their hands now would be agony for them.

The first Clinton high court appointee, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is now 75 years old, three years older than McCain. Ginsburg is second in age on the court only to liberal Republican Justice John Paul Stevens, who is 88.

Gore reinforced this high court concern in his warm-up speech for Sen. Barack Obama on Thursday night at the Invesco Field event in Denver.

“When as many as three Supreme Court justices could be appointed in the first term of the next president, and John McCain promises to appoint more Scalias and Thomases and end a woman's right to choose, it is time for a change,” Gore declared, referring to Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

Sad state of affairs sir.

You are absolutely right. Justices are not supposed to be pawns in a game of liberal/conservative. Their jobs is to interpret the constitution as written. Sadly, its changed and become biased towards personal viewpoints.

The same as it has become in the district courts, judges legislating from the bench.

Kiss your rights and your a$$ goodbye. If Obama keeps saying that this is the greatest nation, why is he and his "Manson family" hell-bent on changing everything???
