Anyway, who thinks Joseph Stalin is a front runner for supreme court?
Back to the topic.. it doesn't matter too much who Obama chooses. He'll be simple replacing one left leaning judge with another. He's certainly not going to nominate a conservative and I agree that he won't nominate a far left jurist. He's in enough hot water now with out turning up the heat more.
This thread makes me sad already. I started it wanting to talk about something of key importance to the country, a new Supreme Court justice. Instead, all we can do is bicker about party politics.
If he nominates a moderate lefty, then I think many will vote for the candidate. Most Senators tend to give the President a lot of leeway in Supreme Court nominations, with the exceptions of the Dem's smears of Bork and Thomas.
