I found myself today trying to identify the voting blocks on the Supreme Court. This law site sums it up nicely. Here’s a recap, with an update:
Very Conservative: Antonin Scalia (Reagan) and Clarence Thomas (Bush Sr.)
Conservative: Sandra Day O’Connor (Reagan), Anthony Kennedy (Reagan), John Roberts (Bush Jr.)
Moderates: John Paul Stevens (Ford), David Souter (Bush Sr.), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Clinton), Stephen Breyer (Clinton)
I’m not sure I’d call of those guys moderates, but I don’t care to quibble. Amazing how many non-conservatives were appointed by Republican presidents. This next appointment should be a good fight.
