    I see we have business as usual in Washington with the present administration. Sure, why not pick a person for the Supreme Court who NOT only has NEVER been a Judge herself but, choose her for her SEX without evaluating ALL prospective candiates for the job. The Supreme Court is SEXIST, WOW I guess they can do what ever they want without any due consideration to our Constitution. I guess thats what happens when we vote a President into office without any experience also. Democrats, look out for the tide of change in 2012!!!

    A shame that the facts will be distorted, she has just as much right to her views as any of the others, the senators are allowed to wrap their partisonship in a spin and thats ok. I wonder if any of them that are being critical could stand up to the same scrutiny and standards that they want to apply to her. If you think they can I have some property to sell you.
