Beginning of the American Civil War?
Sandra Day O'Connor, the half-liberal (social issues), half-conservative (business, law enforcement issues) swing vote has announced her retirement, shocking everyone, who expected one of the Supremes who are currently only one step ahead of Teri Shiavo to retire. If Bush attempts to replace her with a pro-lifer, the left in this country is going to go absolutely friggin nuts. If Bush tries to replace her with a pro-choice conservative like Gonazalez, then the far right wing is going to go absolutely friggin nuts. This is going to be fun.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
