Interesting Question

... from Mike Rappaport:
How ironic that William Rehnquist's successor was confirmed by the Senate 78-22. Rehnquist is sometimes reported to have said that if his opinion got more than 5 votes overall, than he had made a mistake. That he got six or more votes for an opinion suggested he could have written the opinion to reach a better result and still have gotten a majority. Did George Bush make a mistake and appoint someone who was more moderate than he needed to?
With my current opinion of GW, being what it is, I will just keep quiet.
