Just four days after Harriet Miers' withdrawal, Samuel Alito is getting the Supreme Court nomination nod from the president. Referred to as 'Scalito' (sharing similar views with Antonin Scalia), the president should be able to rally back his conservative base with this conservative appealing nomination.
For those who thought the John Roberts hearing was bad, Alito's confirmation hearing should be filled with even more emotion and grandstanding from the left on the senate. Even before the official announcement Monday, Democrats already started sending out press releases criticizing Bush's nomination of Alito. Over the weekend, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that a filibuster is not out of the question if the president nominates someone who is way out of the mainstream.
Samuel A. Alito has been a strong conservative jurist on the Philadelphia-based 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a court with a reputation for being among the nation's most liberal.
