Re: The end of the Reid?
When it comes down to November, I think that his opponent's radicalism will clinch Reid a victory.
The real debate is between what the text of the Constitution means in the modern context and what the spirit of the Constitution means in the modern context. Conjecture on the intention of the Founding Fathers or the context of early American society has no place in the courts.
I could never support Conservative social policies or Neoliberalism/Reaganomics, because I have severe objections to Communism and believe in the Free Market.
