    has NEVER been a fan of the New Deal. I'll see if I can find the link, but I remember reading an article where she is specifically characterized as being against New Deal policies just like her father was, back in the days when she was growing up on a ranch in Arizona.

    The situation once she leaves becomes the possible nomination and confirmation of a justice who's even more against New Deal policies than she is, and depending on the scope of the cases before the court that may not bode well.

    But it's silly to argue over what her greatest significance to the court is (was) assuming another nominee is confirmed before the next SCOTUS session begins.  O'Connor's out.  Done.  Big things a'comin.  We need to move on and determine who Bush wants to see confirmed and then work against his extremist nominees from there.

    Flag burnings occur on average 8 times a year. Is the time/$ cost of a constitutional amendment really worth anyone's tax dollars - even if they support it?
