    I'm wore out my arguments in a similar thread. A damn good topic though.

    Jillian has voiced her opinion that this is fine and dandy. Now of course if Bush had used this criteria we would have never heard the end from people like Jillian about the rule of law and the IMPARTIAL process.

    Can we say Hypocrite?

    If the Senate approves a Judge on their empathy we should start recall procedures on all that vote yes.

    I'm patiently waiting for somebody (read liberal) to attempt to discredit Mr Williams so I can laugh at their failure.

    Should a judge without empathy be nominated and approved?
