Sandra Day O'Connor: Bush Vs Gore might have been a mistake

Postby rabble » Mon Apr 29, 2013 3:31 pm

In hindsight, it might have been better if we hadn't accepted that one. "That one" being Bush v. Gore, which ended the Florida recount and decided the 2000 presidential election.

The case, she said, “stirred up the public” and “gave the court a less-than-perfect reputation.”


Yeah. I guess that's one way to put it.

It's also been said that Citizens United would have gone the other way had O'Connor not resigned and been replaced before it came before the court.

Too late now.

I guess hindsight is 30-06 after all.
