Hillary Clinton had an idea:
Sen. Hillary Clinton said Thursday she has urged President Bush to choose a Supreme Court nominee who would not "tilt the balance" on the high court, adding that the next nominee's role could prove more crucial than that of Judge John Roberts.
That would be why her husband replaced Justice White (the other justice in addition to Rehnquist who dissented from the Roe v. Wade decision) with Justice Ginsburg...?
Needless to say, if Bush replaces O'Connor with someone as far to her right as Ginsburg was to White's left, none of us pro-lifers will be complaining. Janice Rogers Brown, anyone?
