Samuel Alito - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While Samuel Alito is a much better choice for a Supreme Court nominee than Harriet Miers, I still have some reservations about him. Several of the opinions he has issued in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals have completely disregarded precedence. While this would be counter-balanced by the other Supreme Court Justices, it leaves my uneasy.
By the way, the reason many Republicans were against Harriet Miers as a nominee was not, as it has been put forth in several media outlets, that she was not conservative enough. It was because she has never sat on the bench. Personally, I was very disheartened that President Bush would proffer such an unqualified candidate.
