    Like Bush did to the lefties with Meyers...

    Now that is probably close to the truth.

    If he wanted to do that, he'd have picked an actual liberal.

    And I'm hoping the left (or the right for that matter)....will derail the nomination and we will get a true liberal (like the right-wing got the hard right Alito).....

    we can see what moving to the extremes has done to our politics (and our nation)
    the last thing we need to do is pursue a move to the extremes with our judiciary

    I hope that they will derail her nomination because she has no experience. I hope they appoint a centrist or someone who will credibly uphold the law and the Constitution and not legislate based on their feelings or ideologies. We don't need a true liberal or conservative, we need a true objective judge who will uphold the law regardless of his personal beliefs and feelings. The justice system should have nothing to do with political spectrum and the SCOTUS has no place in legislating or pushing for ideology.

    That might be true, except for the fact that GWB tilted the court to the hard right by appointing right-wing activist judges (Roberts and Alito). We need to restore balance to the court. Kagan doesn't restore that balance. We need a true liberal.

    So of course you believed that Rehnquist was a bad judge then?
    I would agree with you on that.
