No more Supreme Court Justices
The argument goes like this: "Okay, we'll let Bush have Roberts replace Rehnquist because they're both conservative and that won't change the makeup of the court; and besides, Bush will never nominate somebody who isn't a hard rightie. But we'll fight to be sure Bush puts someone in who is just as 'centrist' as O'Connor!"
A free kitten from Kitten War to anyone who can spot the problem with that argument.
As Charles says, better to let the SC stay at eight than elevate another Bush selection.
(b) O'Connor was such a 'centrist' she voted with the pro-dictatorship side in Bush v. Gore.
