The Supreme Court and Conservative Support for McCain

Another thought on Heller: The decision was based on a 5-4 vote. A switch of one vote, and the decision would have been the opposite of the one handed down. The decision is the poster child for why political conservatives should enthusiastically support John McCain for president.

It's the only reason I'm voting for him. Despite that, I think he will lose and we could see a massive and permanent leftward realignment. All the old liberals will retire, and Scalia is not in great health. Also, Kennedy could retire. So you could see a plus 2 or 3 shift left over 8 years of Obama, meaning the end of most conservative hopes for the court.

Enthusiastically? It may sway my vote. But I won't be enthusiastic.
