Rehnquist died at the age of 80 and Sandra Day O'Connor announced her retirement at the age of 75.

There are two more Justices that over the age of 70, and they're both liberals:

  • John Paul Stevens (considered liberal): 85 years of age (born April 19, 1920)
  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg (considered liberal): 72 years of age (born March 15, 1933)


I wonder if these facts have calculated into White House nomination decisions (Miers)...is it a fair bet that Stevens will be gone before Bush's term is over?

I had not idea that these people were that well into their ages, I guess bush will probably end up appointing the next two also.

John Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader Ginsburg both will hold on for as long as they can. It is likely that Bush will get one more chance to get one in before 2008 as John Paul Stevens is indeed dodging a coffin and it is likely that the Neo-Con's and BushCo thought of at least two possible people dropping out in his second term.

This'll be seen as theri 'Big Chance' if they can get several 'youngish' fans of the BushCo policy onto the supreme court that their policy and views will stay on for a long while and cause many problems for democrats if they can get back into power. If they can get four...well damn.

The War on Terror and Supreme Court nominations is the reason Bush was elected twice.

Although he let alot of people down with the Miers pick, she still is alot better than who ALGORE or Kerry would have came up with.

I predict Stevens will be replaced, but Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg will hold out.

That's funny since the critical chunk of people that voted for him said they were just scared of butt sex. Ohhhh, that's what you mean when you say Supreme Court nominations. Riiiight. And that's the issue the Right currently feels sodomized by Bush over.


Speaking of terrorism though, Americans now consider George Bush a bigger problem facing the US than TERRORISM.

Well, it's almost a tie. They are the same thing.

Carseller is correct in his analysis that the Supreme Court nominations certainly helped Bush by keeping together a coalition of right wing people that perhaps weren't exactly thrilled with everything he did, but were terrified at the thought of Kerry picking at least two (as was expected then) Justices of the SCOTUS, preventing a party split or voter apathy.

Right, it was all for this moment in which he utterly failed his base.

Thus the sodomized over sodomy.

Somebody that would have been friendly to sodomy and gays living next door to you celebrating weddings.


By the way many of bush supporters talk about Bush choices and Bush decisions it seems that the whole purpose of Bush was to waste tax payer money on causes that are doing nothing for the issues that they are defending.

Funny when it comes to defending the bad President we have now, still gays and war are the main priority in their minds.
