Justice Posner?

A Unifying Candidate, But Bush isn't About Unity

Instapundit links to an interesting article that discusses how Bush could achieve victory on the next Supreme Court vacancy by nominating well respected and libertarian leaning Justice Posner. Posner is widely considered one of the greatest legal minds of our time, and as a former law student, he's decisions are impressive.

But what instapundit and his friends are missing is that, save for No Child Left Behind, President Bush's policy strategy (or what passes for one these days) isn't about consensus or unity, it's about building the barest majority possible by exploiting electoral divisions...FMA, Nuclear Option, ect. While it's a good idea, it doesn't reflect the reality of what this administration is all about.
