Dubya faces reality.

Not about Iraq, unfortunately.

But the prez has seen the writing on the wall and has withdrawn the nominations of four of his nastiest candidates for the federal bench — obviously realizing that there is no chance in hell that the Democratic-controlled Senate will confirm them.

Unfortunately, Dubya also re-submitted 32 other right-wing judicial nominees. Luckily, we can expect that the Senate Judiciary committee will kill the nominations of the worst of them. Yeah, this is only incremental progress, but the GOP Senate would have let all of the creeps through.

Nastiest candidates I guess for you would be judges that actually FOLLOW the Constitution and refuse to make up laws and rights that are not there.
Setting up the Supreme Court as a monarchy is not what the founding fathers had in mind. There are ways to change the Constitution constitutionally, but liberals could not get their socialism and communism thru that way. That is why liberals love the courts. It goes around the American people.
