The acid test of how liberal the nominee is or isn't is how the far left reacts, not Sean Hannity. Truth is, whomever he chooses the GOP will portray them as a radical liberal no matter what.

My issue with the timing, which may differ from Buster's, is that the dust has barely settled on healthcare, so there's still some raw feelings on both sides of the aisle leftover from the debate. Secondly, with the mid-terms approaching this will be over politicized and over covered by the media and further gridlock Washington.
What debate?

How sweet of you to think about me when I'm not here.


This woman sounds like a reasonable selection from President Obama.

A President with no prior executive experience selecting a Justice with no prior judicial experience.

I believe there's been something like 40 SCOTUS picks without prior judicial experience.

The second argument is as old as John McCain
