Lisa McElroy: The Supreme Court: The Best Reason to Vote Against Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney has said that, if elected president, he would nominate justices like Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court of the United States. In fact, Romney is advised by Robert Bork, a failed Supreme Court nominee who is known for his extreme conservative Constitutional views. Given that the average longevity of a Supreme Court justice is now just over 25 years, whoever is appointed will likely serve for six presidential terms. The stakes, therefore, far transcend the current election. Tying his views of the Constitution to the views of Scalia and Thomas, however, should hurt, not help, Mitt Romney’s desire for election to the highest office of the land.
