Many republicans will support John McCain next Tuesday because they hope he will continue to elect justices to the court who will overturn Roe v. Wade. While abortion is a very important issue in our day that must be eliminated, there is plenty of evidence that people like John McCain and most republicans in general aren’t going to cause it to happen. The New American has published a good article, Would McCain Change the Court? that examines the history of justices that have been appointed by republicans over the years. Looking at the history of Republican appointed justices shouldn’t give much hope. Combine that with the fact that McCain is a self professed maverick that likes to make a deal with the left (compromise), and I don’t see why anyone thinks McCain will help. Palin is definitely to the right of McCain on this issue but I don’t see her fighting her boss on this one.
