In case anyone is still not convinced, how is this relevant?
Referring to large numbers of poor and black New Orleans residents who were dispossessed by the storm, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., said earlier in the week the disaster underscored “the glaring economic disparities facing our citizens.”
“As a nation, we must be sensitive to this inequality, sensitive as we respond to Katrina, and sensitive, too, as we select now justices for the Supreme Court,” he said. “That’s a critical question for Judge Roberts. Can he unite America for the future?”
Because a hurricane caused foreseeable damage, Judge Roberts is now responsible for uniting America? How does Senator Kennedy keep getting elected? This is at least where, if the Democrats had any competent leaders, someone would have muzzled the Senator before he could offer such ammunition to the “they just hate conservatives so I don’t need to listen to them” people. If nothing else, this proves why presidents rarely come from the Senate.
Are you listening, Senator Clinton?
