    It matters because their views on what the United States should be, which direction it should go in are drastically different.

    Not to mention the fact that their Supreme Court nominations (and others)will be vital in how our Constitution (and laws) are interpreted in the future.

    They are indeed more intelligent. McCain though has voted with Bush 90+% of the time. That is not far enough from the Bush policies for me.

    Supreme Court nominations are one of the most important things that the next president will do. This is a great point.

    I would imagine that the Congress could only resist nominees for so long before the American people started complaining about them not agreeing to one of McCain's choices. He might not get through the most conservative choice but frankly, I don't see him being all that interested in a far-right justice. A moderate-right justice would still have a tremendous impact, just as a moderate-left justice would.

    This is, I agree with Inferno, one of the most crucial issues to consider when choosing who to vote for during this election season.

    I cannot disagree with you, but just saying McCain isn't the end of the world. And he really might destroy the right wing of the Republican party by marginalizing it so. We'll see

    In the current state of affairs I think McCain is looking far more right then he is. He may well pick better than far right judges.

    I also think his plans for our military are far reaching and I think here his agreement with Bush is far to extreme and i think these are his actual views.
