A Reminder

While I wish a speedy recovery and good health to Chief Justice William Rehnquist, his illness is but one reminder of what is at stake in the election. Mr. Bush has repeatedly said he would like to appoint more justices like Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, neither of whom have liked a progressive opinion since the McKinley Administration.

Rehnquist was promoted from within the Supreme Court to Chief Justice. Can you imagine Chief Justice Antonin Scalia?
