High SCOTUS Stakes

By on 9.28.05 | 1:12AM

As pundits ponder and conservatives speculate who the next Supreme Court nominee might be, let's bear in mind the cases the Court is considering this coming term. Among them, a case considering Vermont's strict campaign finance regulations. If Bush succeeds in seeing a conservative justice confirmed in Justice O'Connor's stead, that new justice could reverse the 5-4 margin in McConnell v. U.S., in which O'Connor was in the majority.

UPDATE (9:38 a.m.): The one-man free speech shop, Bob Bauer, is surprised that the Court will hear these cases.
