A very special Two-Hour Debate Tuesday…
(Just after this show, Bush announced his pick to be Supreme Court Justice. He chose Judge John Roberts, former clerk to Chief Justice Rehnquist, to replace Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court. Roberts is a judge appointed by Bush to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in 2003 who used to work for the Solicitor General’s office in the Bush Sr. and Reagan Administrations. I have an open mind on Judge Roberts. Though he is obviously a conservative, I will not make a decision on his nomination until I have reviewed his writings and witnessed his Senate testimony. If he — unlike Scalia or Thomas — does not wish to “legislate from the bench,” I will not be in favor of filibustering his nomination.)
But just before Bush made his choice, right-wing talk radio host Jim Greenfield and I made ours: not particular individuals, but the judicial philosophies we believe any future justice should follow. I believe a Justice should strictly abide by the language of the Constitution. Jim Greenfield claims to believe the same. Yet we obviously come to different conclusions…
To do this, I was a guest on the Jim Greenfield show, and he was a guest on THE INSIDE SCOOP.
