Welcome to the party Mr. Bill!

jn

State GOP just released one. Its on their website.

WTF

Rutt wants a coalition builder on SCOTUS? I think he's got his branches mixed up. Does he know what a Justice does?

And I see he went straight for the abortion litumus test.

WTF is lost...

A little touchy WTF, I read the Bridges statement and it doesn't mention abortion at all.

As for your knowledge of the supreme court and coalition building... ever heard of Earl Warren?

"Warren joined the Court in the midst of one of its most important issues: racial segregation in public schools. The new Chief proved an effective leader (unlike his predecessor) by bringing the Brethren from division to unanimity on the issue of racial equality." -- Jerry Goldman, Historian

Drop the spin and remember the foundation of our democracy.

RealityCheck

Get real WTF, if you think the justices don't argue and build coalitions on the court then you need to get out more. Leadership always matters.

Branches?

WTF is waaaaay off. Forget Earl Warren (well, don't, but you know what I mean). What about the Chief of Chief Justices--John Marshall?

I would contend, sir, that it is *you* who have your branches mixed up, not to mention your knowledge of Supreme Court history.

Earl Warren did some very noble things, in the wrong brach of government. Laws are created in our system by elected officials not appointed ones, but whatever

I notice Salazar's statement covers the little-remembered portion of the Compromise 14: that Bush should consult the Senate during his decision-making.

Everyone is wondering if the Democrats will "break their pledge" over Bush's SCOTUS appointment; I'd say they're within the bounds of the agreement to do so if Bush continues on without that consultation, and I'd say Salazar was laying the early groundwork for that potential occurence.
