Question of the Day

Don't know what you'd ask, but if I could ask Judge Sam Alito, this president's nominee to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the Supreme Court, one question, and one question only, I would ask:

"What do you think of the role the Supreme Court played in intervening in an election, in 2000, overthrowing the popular vote, and appointing the president of the United States in a country that prides itself on free elections? What kind of precedent did that set and, by extension, what role should the Supreme Court play, in future, if faced with a similar set of circumstances, and in addressing the problem of voter disenfranchisement?"
