Thank God for Sandra

Well, I haven't had much to say for the last few days--not much has happened, it seems. But I couldn't let pass the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, whom I respect so much, without a comment.

So, thank God [sic] for O'Connor. Although the Rehnquist court was conservative in it's make-up, it turned out to be extraordinarily centrist in it's decisions. I can't think of a decision (except in the Eminent Domain case) made by the Court in the last ten or fifteen years which I thought was outrageous, partisan, or arbitrary. The main reason for this must be O'Connor, the swing vote in hundreds of cases, who consistently and objectively erred on the side of The People. You couldn't ask for more from a Court or a Justice.
