The Supreme Court nomination battle will begin to heat up. Sandra Day O’Connor has retired, opening up new battle grounds for “conservatives” and “liberals”. Liberals, of course, want someone to interpet the Constituion their way. Conservatives, astoundingly, want the same!
What is atrocious is the thought that the Supreme Court is supposed to “unite us”. Yet, that is the claim of Senator Patrick Leahy when he declared he would stand with President Bush in selecting a nominee who can unite Americans.
In a cursory reading of the United States Constitution, I cannot find anywhere in the document where that is a JOB REQUIREMENT!
Then again, I’m not a “Constitutional Scholar”. It must be in there somewhere…just like the “right to privacy”.
