59. "she is strongly opposed by conservative groups"
Edited on Tue May-26-09 09:34 AM by GreenArrow
Surely you don't believe that Obama could select anyone -- other than actual conservatives -- that conservative groups would support. In other words, unless the pick is a self defined conservative, conservative groups are not going to support, at least initially, any Obama nominee, whether a moderate, or gasp, an actual liberal.

I don't know enough about this judge to offer an opinon, but based on Obama's cabinet picks, etc, I doubt she's a flame throwing liberal. I'm not getting my hopes up. If she ends up being no worse than Souter, or as good as Souter, she'll be a decent pick, so far as things go.
