Esenberg on McCain
I mentioned in a previous post the historic opportunity to change the federal judiciary. Rick Esenberg gives a little more detail.
This notion is that we need time in the wilderness is wrong for at least three reasons. Six of the justices on the US Supreme Court will be over 70 during the next Presidential term. While four of those six are in the Court’s liberal wing, the next President may be able to dramatically change the balance of the Court. This cannot be changed by the next President.
Changing the courts is a winning issue for conservatives, and it is also a priority. Even if McCain appointed justices more like Anthony Kennedy than Antonin Scalia, surely that would be an improvement over Ruth Bader Ginsburg?
