    I think you can count on them to come out on the liberal side.

    Whats interesting is the partisanship of confirmation for judges now. Scalia has pointed out on occasion that even though he is conservative (and Congress and the President knew he was conservative), he was still confirmed unanimously (98-0) during his hearing process.

    Scalia's argument is that because some judges now look at the constitution as a living document (and not from an originalist perspective) is that it has now become partisan on who gets appointed because the perception is that they will vote their politics.

    Although literally you are correct, I think its obvious to most that all the lobbying groups (from the far left to the far right) will be throwing money at every person they can, not only in the Senate, but also at the Judiciary Committee members and all the other political organizations (I bet as we type that there are tv ads being put together right now!)

    Without naming names, I've seen some paranoid, if not just stupidly ridiculous comments in this thread...

    The supreme election of 2000 gave the lie to any pose of constitutional moral purist high ground.

    Scalie et al decided that case, that election, based on the outcome that they wanted -- then sought a THONG of constitutional rationalization to justify themselves.

    They as much confessed this when they stated that that decision should not be used subsequently as procedent !!!

    It was the "Armageddon" remark.

    Even a non-believer like myself isn't worried about the US becoming Taliban-West. The sky won't fall, he's not appointing the Pope to the SCOTUS.

    Personally, I dont think you've made a serious observation. But that's just my opinion

    Back on topic...

    This is a key observation. Interest groups are using litigation as a means to advance their political agenda, rather than relying on legislation. And in concert, the lawyers are proposing anywhere from stetched to flat-out farfetched slants on existing law, trying to get a ruling.

    It should be no wonder that the appointment process has become so political. Unfortunately for all Americans, this can only lead to further polarization.

    The three-legged stool is very stable as long as the legs are equal size and displacement. When any one gets too big or too small, or moves too close to another, it's only a matter of time before it falls.....along with everything that's resting on it.

    I don't see a problem with the decision myself - regardless of who the "winner" was. I felt the argument to continue down the ridiculous path of interpreting votes should have ended long before.

    if elections are a truly sacred right in a democracy -- and one man one vote means anything -- the recount that the Florida Supreme court ordered should have been finished under neutral observation.

    My tangent btw, was in response to the comment that the supreme conservatives are somehow more repectful of original intent: "originalist perspective".

    The 2000 election ruling where the supreme conservatives state that their decision would have no weight of precedent, disproved that absolutely.
