Columnist Andrew McCarthy gives us what probably is the most important question regarding the upcoming presidential election….
“…..if Mitt wins the nomination, as seems very likely, I will enthusiastically support his candidacy. For my friends who have hesitation on that score, I'd just ask you to keep four things in mind:

1.. Justice Scalia just turned 78
2.. Justice Kennedy will turn 78 later this year
3.. Justice Breyer will be 76 in August
4.. Justice Ginsburg turned 81 about a week ago.
We wish them all well, of course, but the brute fact is that whoever we elect as president in November is almost certainly going to choose at least one and maybe more new members of the Supreme Court — in addition to hundreds of other life-tenured federal judges, all of whom will be making momentous decisions about our lives for decades to come.

If you don’t think it matters whether the guy making those calls is Mitt Romney or Barack Obama, I think you're smokin’ something funky…;

So for anybody who is thinking of not voting because your favorite didn’t get nominated, or writing in a candidate who can't win... Imagine this: SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ERIC HOLDER

Eric Holder isn't even on the long list of nominees, so you can unclench your panties.

Nominee list is here:


There are some excellent candidates on the list, so rest assured, Obama will get my vote.

Obama won't get my vote, since I think anyone who kills U.S. citizens without due process belongs behind bars. I won't accept any behavior from Obama that I wouldn't be willing to accept under GW Bush, and murdering citizens is a crime.

Ironically enough, Obama is more likely than Romney to nominate someone who will continue to support civil rights, making a vote for Romney a bad idea.

I can totally understand where you're coming from, Charlie. Speaking of Eric Holder, I think he's made two horrible decisions: Operation Fast and Furious and his assertion that the Constitution guarantees due process but not judicial process with respect to the Al-Awlki situation.

I'm not shedding tears over Al-Awlki, but what I find deeply disturbing are the long-term implications. The executive branch has been steadily growing in power since the 80's and it's upsetting the three-way balance that is so necessary for this republic (or what's left of it) to work.
