A Good Question

From the democrats.org site:

"When Ronald Reagan chose Sandra Day O'Connor for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, he chose a consensus conservative, someone who -- while not Democrats' ideal candidate -- would make decisions based on her interpretation of the Constitution rather than a narrow ideological agenda.

And while there have been many cases where Democrats have disagreed with O'Connor's decisions (see Bush v. Gore), she has always been someone clearly in the mainstream of American values.

Now President Bush faces an important choice. Will he follow the instructions in the Constitution to consult the Senate when choosing a nominee to replace O'Connor on the Supreme Court? Will he listen to Democrats as well as Republicans and choose a nominee who will protect our basic values?

Or will he give into the pressure from the radical right wing of his party and nominate an ideological extremist? Will Bush choose someone for a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court who bases his or her on a narrow partisan agenda instead of the Constitution?"
