  •  Here's a good question, though. (none)
    The wingnut "base" has been consistent in their support of this President.  Yet his numbers continue to fall as more moderate traditional Republicans move away from his ideological leanings.  I have seen a subtle move away from the wingnut branch by this Administration in an effort to shore up the President's numbers.  I think it's just as likely that the President nominates a moderate to help his sagging numbers as he is to put up a hard-liner to appease the "base".  Remember - his poll numbers prevent him from doing anything on the domestic front and resonates negatively across the party.

    The revolution is coming... and we ARE the revolution.

    •  Except that.... (none)
      ... a lot of times in politics, people who care rabidly get more of what they want than people who don't care so much.

      It always appears that, on the subject of judges, a lot of the wingnuts care rabidly and the more moderate Republicans don't care so much.

      I doubt Republican moderates would be especially alienated by any of the potential nominees whose names have been floated.

      This is how liberty dies... with thunderous applause.
