The Supreme Court - Who will replace Chief Justice Rehnquist?


Potential Nominees

Jan Crawford Greenberg's article in The Chicago Tribune summarizes what we could expect. If Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez is not considered suitable by the conservatives, imagine what could be coming down the pike.

It will be interesting to see whether the opposition would be able to muster enough support to have a voice in the confirmation proceedings .

A Bouquet for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor - A Sane Voice

"At a time when we see around the world the violent consequences of the assumption of religious authority by government, Americans may count themselves fortunate: Our regard for constitutional boundaries has protected us from similar travails, while allowing private religious exercise to flourish. … Those who would renegotiate the boundaries between church and state must therefore answer a difficult question: Why would we trade a system that has served us so well for one that has served others so poorly."

Thus wrote Justice O'Connor on 6/27/05 in her opinion about the display of Ten Commandments.

I do not expect the zealots,who want to ram their beliefs down our throats,to pause even for a moment to think about the opinion expressed by Justice O'Connor. They wish her gone from the Court; sooner the better.

In the private property seizure (so called "eminent domain") case, Justice O'Connor was on the losing side of the 5-4 decision.

"She argued that cities should not have unlimited authority to uproot families, even if they are provided compensation, simply to accommodate wealthy developers."
(AP, 6/23/05)

I am with those who feel that this ruling would open a floodgate for unscrupulous municipal officials and greedy developers (there is no other kind).

For Justice O'Connor, applause and a bouquet.
