As it stands at this moment there are 4 liberals, 4 conservatives, and Justice Kennedy, who votes conservatively on business issues and liberally on social issues and national security (IE- he's basically useless).
If we can get someone who's "moderate" in that they are conservitive on the issues Kennedy is liberal on, we have a slim supreme court majority that can do wonders for this nation for years to come and help us avoid travesties like this one.
So come on fence-sitting conservatives. You know that a McCain pick to the court would never have voted to give the rights of citizenship to foreign terrorists. As someone rather smart said recently-
"What I hear from people," said Richard Land, president of the SBC's Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission, "is, 'John McCain was not my first choice, John McCain was not my second choice, John McCain was not my third choice. However, I would rather have a third-rate fireman than a first-class arsonist.' And they view Obama as a first-class arsonist."
