    Re: Hillary Clinton On The Supreme Court?

    Hillery sitting on the SCOTUS is about as laughable as Palin sitting in the oval office.

    There is the correct interpretation and the outcome based wrong interpretation.

    The surest way to kill the Constitution is to claim it is a "living document"

    actually Palin's qualifications to be president-given what we have had of late are far stronger than Hillary's to be a justice

    Hillary only got into Yale Law because she was female. She didn't even make Cum Laude in college. She didn't make the law review didn't clerk for an appellate judge (let alone a justice) wasn't order of the coif and she flunked the DC Bar.

    Lets look at recent USSC picks


    Scalia-#1 in his colllege class, #1 at Harvard law. Souter-Rhodes Scholar, Thomas-the weakest but still top half of his class at yale Law and was an appellate judge, Sotomayor Phi Beta Kappa, Top of her law school Class.
    Roberts-#1 at Harvard law, seen as the top supreme court advocate in the USA. Alito-PBK at Princeton top of his class at yale law. RB Ginsburg. made the law review at Harvard and Columbia (transferred due to her husband's illness), Breyer top of his class at both college and law school, Kennedy, Phi beta Kappa, Order of the Coif, law review at Harvard, etc

    Hillary isn't evan as qualified as Thomas. She isn't anywhere near her husband's two picks and like it or not W's two picks were the strongest of any president in the last 100 years

    That's the fallacy of the "strict constructionist" mentality. Why would you rely on the minds of people from the 1700's when the world is a completely different place, with different technology today.

    The other problem with the so-called "strict constructionists" is that they love to talk about "strict constructionism" until it doesn't fit their agenda....at which time, they engage in right-wing activism...e.g.....Corporations are "people" under the Constitution.

    Where in the US Constitution does it say that a Corporation is a "person" if you are a "strict" constructionist.

    If I had it my way, both Hillery and Palin would run off and get married and spend the rest of their lives on a secluded island.

    right next to the clause that says the government has the power to create social security, regulate small arms or tell an innkeeper whom he has to accommodate.

    Re: Hillary Clinton On The Supreme Court?

    So, TD, are you saying that the prez didn't actually misspeak, but rather he actually BELIEVES there are 57 states in the US? Is that what you're saying?

    I find it funny that the lib press has such a double standard. Yeah he mis=spoke just as Bush did. I worry about what people do rather than how they way it. I also find it funny that people call VP candidate Palin "stupid" yet give Biden a pass when that guy is dumber than a post as is Pelosi
