Well Said.

NYT's lead editorial today:
Before that fight begins, Mr. Bush should ask himself whether Americans want to live in a country where the handicapped cannot find a champion in the law, where women are stripped of all abortion rights, where universities are barred from offering a hand up to deserving minority students. Then he should ask himself how much of his own party's current success has been due to Justice O'Connor's ability to save the right wing from the worst consequences of its extremism.
And this is what the Democrats should be asking the American public as well. They should be prepared with a nice long list of all the decisions that would have gone the other way if Sandy had been another Scalia, and ask Americans if they really want to live in that alternate America.
