I'm not going to say anything about this lamentable decision that hasn't already been by others.
I didn't vote for either Bush or Kerry. Hopefully the silver-lining of the Bush administrating will be picking Justices that will move the Court in a more libertarian direction. We can hope. As Andrew Sullivan says:
It seems to me that the most inspired pick for the Supreme Court would be a thoroughgoing economic and social libertarian. The freedom-loving part of the Republican coalition has already been alienated in so many ways by this administration. A libertarian SCOTUS pick would go some way to winning them back.
