A vote for the Supreme Court

June 19, 2008

Re "Crossing Obama off the list," letters, June 18

To the women with the brilliant idea that electing John McCain will leave a clear field for Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2012, I have three words: Supreme Court justices. There probably will be at least two openings on the court in the next four years. If McCain gets to fill them with the type of justice he says he admires most, you can say goodbye to Roe vs. Wade, workplace protection laws, equal pay legislation -- and say hello to more government wiretapping and the policy of "guilty unless proven innocent."

In the immortal words of Justice Antonin Scalia, "Get over it." Obama is our candidate and deserves all the support he can get. We can't afford another four years of Republican leadership.
