Politics

So John Kerry is going to be the Democratic contender? That's nice.

Yawn.

For lots of folks the biggest issue in November will be the war on terror. And while that's a big one for me, it's not THE biggest. The number one reason I will be voting for George W. Bush this fall? Supreme Court vacancies.

I believe the America that my grandkids (may they be a long time coming) inhabit will be determined more by the makeup of the SCOTUS than by any other factor, terrorism included. And while I hold no great hope that our society's current downward moral spiral can be reversed (or even halted, for that matter), I can hope that a more conservative SCOTUS won't be greasing the rails.
