Most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election

Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election….“…..if Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I’d just ask you to keep four things in mind:

1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78
2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year
3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August
4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.

We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you’re smokin’ something funky….”

So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can't win... Imagine this:

Then Obama does hold a legitimate threat over their heads,unless each endured so much crap under his administration that they want out anyway.Given the content of this post,the Supreme Court could be gravitating toward even more of a self serving format.Our entire system has a built in conflict of interest.

personally, i think ginsburg has had enough liberalism and is holding out to be replaced by a conservative.

It is ridiculous that the positions are life time appointments you would think it was the Vatican.
