According to press reports, President Bush is seeking a 'mainstream' Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

President Bush gave the nation several clues Saturday about the person he will nominate for a seat on the Supreme Court, except for the most important one — a name. In his weekly radio address, Bush said his eventual nominee will be a "fair-minded individual who represents the mainstream of American law and American values*."

Lets see what a nominee who is in the mainstream of American values might be like.

That person would have some or very little confidence in the Supreme Court;

They would believe the country is on the wrong track;

They would be against a total ban on abortion;

They would disapprove of the way the President has handled Iraq;

They would approve of embryonic stem cell research;

They would favor affirmative action programs for minorities;

They would disapprove of the way the President is handling Social Security;

I could live with mainstream. Of course, they'd favor allowing the Ten Commandments to be displayed in government facilities, would favor a Constitutional ban of Gay marriage and wouldn't like flag burning.

* mainstream is defined as "the prevailing current". Do we really want someone who changes with the current? It is theorized that Bush really meant mainstream values found in rural Idaho.
