Next president will shape Supreme Court

Letter to the Editor

I would like to remind people that this presidential election is more than the economy, defense, education and so on. It is also who will influence national judicial rulings for the next 20-30 years.

The next president will determine who serves as the next two-four Supreme Court justices. If Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen Breyer retire in the next coming years, either could tip the precarious balance held in check by the current mix of conservative and liberal judges.

It remains a scarcely touched issue with Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, but it is one that deserves almost as much attention as the economy, and definitely more attention than Big Bird.

On the Supreme court nominations, I don't believe either would chose a Conservative, as Romney has shown his true colors on this point in the past
