Linda Chavez reviews the core position of each major candidate on how as president they would select Supreme Court justices and lesser judges. Read her post, and the New York Times article she links to, but, in case you don’t have time, here’s a quick summary:
Barack Obama: Let’s replace the Constitution with the lyrics to ‘Feelings.’ Judges are support-group facilitators whose job is to make us all feel good.
Hillary Clinton: What does the Constitution say? What result do you want?
John McCain: The Constitution is a binding written contract. You want to change it? Then go through the democratic process we all agreed to, and don’t go whining to a judge if you can’t win.
Needless to say, I’m with the Grumpy Old Guy.
(Now, if we could only get the old goat to admit that McCain-Feingold is unconstitutional. Free speech? What’s that?)
