    Ought to make things a little more interesting...

    "Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr., President Bush's Supreme Court nominee, wrote that "the Constitution does not protect a right to an abortion" in a 1985 document obtained by The Washington Times.
    "I personally believe very strongly" in this legal position, Mr. Alito wrote on his application to become deputy assistant to Attorney General Edwin I. Meese III. "

    Yeah I read that this morning too. Of course he's anti-choice, I would expect nothing less from this president. But add this to his Vanguard troubles, throw in another 6 or 7 weeks before the hearings begin, and add in Bush's weakened status, and I'd say Alito may be in for a rocky ride to the Supreme Court.

    Not a definitive knockout blow by any means, but this will crystalize the opposition to Alito and give those looking for a reason to oppose him something they can hold onto.

    I would like to see them try to overturn Roe v Wade. The backlash against them will be worse than it is now and they'll loose one of the main things that solidifies the base. I'm guessing it's all a show, so they can just reaffirm a woman's right to choose by a small margin and blame it all on the liberals. Then they can slip in all the other horrible stuff they can get away with and no one will notice.
