I’m thrilled about the Court ruling. I LOVE that’s it’s making all the candidates come out on the abortion issue. Romney’s line sounds the most conservative–it’s a “step.” Love it!
CHARLES adds: And from reader Adam:
I’m not sure if you’ve read Justice Ginsburg’s dissent from todays decision regarding partial-birth abortions. In part, she says, “A decision so at odds with our jurisprudence should not have staying power.”
If anyone thinks it is not important what kind of judges a candidate would nominate, they’re kidding themselves. Justice Ginsburg is basically saying she won’t treat this decision as precedent. I don’t support using abortion as a test to determine whom to nominate, but I have no problem with nominating judges who will interpret the constitution as it was written, not as they want it to be written. Out of McCain, Giuliani, and Romney, Romney’s the only one I think I can trust to nominate judicially conservative (as opposed to politically conservative) judges.
