Whither the Courts?
Does Bush have a mandate to nominate judges? The Democrats ran on the idea that if elected he could and would nominate conservative judges. Now that he has won, they object that he will do so. The Wall Street Journal has an interesting Op-Ed. Read it all and ponder where our courts should go. I doubt the scare tactics that the Left pushes will come to pass; ending abortion, gay marriages forced down the throats of middle America, a Patriot Act that will take away all of our freedoms. But there could be changes, and that is not necessarily a bad thing.
Update: A reader let me know that the WSJ item was an op-ed and not an "article." In the interest of clarity the American Heritage Dictionary defines article as "An individual thing or element of a class; a particular object or item: "An individual thing or element of a class; a particular object or item." On the other hand, I don't feel like being hardnosed so I changed it. Tsk! Tsk!
