Something to Consider..
Before You Say You Won't Vote For Whomever Is Nominated Consider This.
"Barack Obama would make a great Supreme Court Justice." – Hillary Clinton
The Boston Globe has come out in Favor of Obama as the perfect Supreme Court Justice. "..what Clinton should do if she wins is make clear that her choice will be none other than Barack Obama, a former professor of constitutional law, and the perfect choice to assume his place on the nation’s highest court." Something to think about, indeed . . .
Some people have brought up the fact that they won't vote for the Republican nominee if the eventual nominee is not the man they wanted. I just want to put something in perspective.
Justice Scalia's seat is vacant.
Ginsberg is 82 years
Kennedy is 79
Breyer is 77
Thomas is 67.
Nowadays, the data shows that the average age of a Supreme Court retirement or death occurs after 75. These are 5 vacancies that will likely come up over the next 4-8 years. The next President will have the power to potentially create a 7-2 Supreme Court skewed in their ideology. Think about that... 7-2.
If the next President appoints 5 young justices, it will****guarantee control of the Supreme Court for an entire generation. And 7-2 decisions will hold up much more over time than 5-4 decisions which are viewed as lacking in mandate.
Hillary has made it clear she will use the Supreme Court to go after the 2nd Amendment. She has literally said that the Supreme Court was wrong in its Heller decision stating that the Court should overturn and remove the individual right to keep and bear arms. Period.
Anyone and Everyone who is saying that they won't vote for one candidate or the other if they are the GOP nominee, please realize this. Hear this! If Hillary Clinton wins and gets to make these appointments, you likely will never see another conservative victory at the Supreme Court level for the rest of your life. Or Ever. Whoever is the GOP nominee ... go VOTE for that GOP Nominee!
Remember Romney? Three million conservatives who had voted for McCain did not cast a vote for Romney (for whatever reason) .... and the result was four additional years of B.H.O.
AND ONE FINAL THOUGHT, Obama On Supreme Court? A great idea Clinton says - CNN.com
