Sen. Susan Collins of Maine will not apply an ideological litmus test to the next Supreme Court nominee, her spokeswoman said Thursday. Collins’ position, which is consistent with her past practice on high court nominees, means she won’t factor a nominee’s support for the landmark abortion-rights ruling of Roe v. Wade into her confirmation decision.
laws get made and changed all the time . Some even get overturned . One aspect Ben Shaperio brings up is the context . I think anyone looking to frame Gay marriage as having any context back in the day when the framers of the constitution were doing their thing would be hard pressed to do so . Ben goes over the choices and even pics who and why they could get the nod . He does give strong points to one woman who for me would help silent a lot of the left and may even bee seen as a kind of victory for them . Trump would also score big political points among women voters and once again shut the MSM attacks down as far as the gender assaults they have been trying
"Rule of law", good phrase.

“Senator Collins does not apply ideological litmus tests to nominees,” Clark said.
"I view Roe v. Wade as being settled law," she said. "It's clearly precedent. I always look for judges who respect precedent."
Is she saying she would only vote for a justice that won't over turn anything?
