    Many people voted against Obama because of his stances on abortion and gun rights. I would like to know what he would be capable of doing regarding these issues, considering the Supreme Court recently made rulings on both of them.

    the two most prevelant wedge issues are constantly recycled to have us at each other's throats vs. paying attention to what our governance is really doing Elvis

    consider, if even a fraction of the rednecks where to be so enthusiastic about the entire constitution , as they are the 2nd amend, we'd truly be the guardians of it here

    consider, the continual pitting of the religmo power base against the civil rights crowd's utter diversion from the stark raving realities of issue the governance is entrusted to mitigate falling right off the radar every election cycle

    well, Stevens had said that since he was appointed by a Republican, he wouldnt resign under anyone but a republican
    i kinda doubt he will keep that promise, unless he plans to stay till he dies

    Stevens tends to vote liberal on the court. How old is Breyer?

    Since these issues are big concerns to those who were afraid of Obama, I think we should discuss how much they have to worry about, considering the Court has ruled recently on both issues. What legal authority would Obama have to change these issues?

    i dont know, but i suspect Ginsburg will retire after this session, now that Obama won
    so thats a lib being replaced by a lib
    and you can bet it will sail through the senate
    hell, i'm almost willing to bet Obama has his full cabinet approved by the end of march, no later than june

    Ginsberg sailed thru the Senate 98-2. I can't remember which Congress it was, but she was confirmed by many republicans.

    I have no problem with liberals having all the abortions they want, I have no problem with liberals turning all their guns and money into the government for the good of all..
