168. Please, I don't believe for a second that it was that clear cut and Bush 41 had no say at

all. There was a process before Bush ever made the formal nomination public. However, whatever. Her appointment to the U.S. District Court is ancient history. The salient, current issue far left or right her actual decisions from the bench have been.

Everything I've read said she is a centrist, which these days seems to mean more right than left. That is not what the Court needs right now, IMO, not with Roberts, Alito, Scalia and Thomas being so far right, Ginsburg in her seventies and ailing, Breyer in his 70's and Stevens--a true centrist-- in his 90's. A true, vigorous progressive is needed to start to counterbalance the far right decisions of the Chief Justice and his unholy trinity.
