Why should Obama pick Al Gore for Supreme Court Of The United States? The answer is one word. PAYBACK.
The biggest obstical in Gore's confirmation is he would be the first justice picked who was not already a judge. However Al Gore knows more then anyone in the country from being the first victem of the dawn of a new tyranny of a partisan system of Justice that rewards party loyalty, at the expense of the rule of law.
Al Gore was this country's first victim of the zealous corruption that gripped the world during 8 terrible years of the nightmare of the Bush Administration. Study after study concludes that hundreds of thousands of human beings would not live to see the end of 8 years of George Bush, because of his criminal exploits as president. Our nation demands Al Gore be the next SCOTUS judge. Only Al can redeem the Court from their disasterous decision in 2000.
And the justices that were there that day know it too.
Bill Clinton remarked of the 2000 Bush vs. Gore decision:
If Gore had been ahead in the vote count and Bush behind, there's not a doubt in my mind that the same Supreme Court would have voted 9 to 0 to [re]count the vote and I would have supported the decision... Bush v. Gore will go down in history as one of the worst decisions the Supreme Court ever made, along with the Dred Scott case.
How could the highest court in the land treat one man different then another man? Wouldn't that fly in the face of every single word in the Constitution? Even instances in the constitution where partiality is in place, where slaves are deemed by the constitution to be 3/5ths a person, these provisions were overturned in further Ammendments.
Bill Clinton was the previous job holder and surely he's opinion on the matter would be a powerful statement to any judge.
Besides, why would anyone not want a recount?
Bush's case was simple:
"Since every county in Florida had slightly different rules on how to do a recount, there could not be a state recount because a mistake might occur when counting a single ballot.
That was Bush's entire case.
If a mistake can be made in recounting, why wouldn't a mistake be made when tallying the votes in the first place on Election night?
Everyone knew mistakes were prone to go in Bush's favor in an election in a state where his brother was governor. So why not have a recount, its easy enough to do. The Supreme Court concurs with the prior courts ruling all the time. 4 justices did concur with the prior courts ruling. 5 did not.
If Al Gore becomes a SCOTUS justice, he will be met with several other justices who were there those fateful days.
Justices Stevens, Ginsburg, Souter and Breyer voted for the recount, Sandra Day O'Connor, Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, and William Rehnquist voted against a recount.
With Souter retireing and Stevens, Ginsburg, Breyer still there, Al Gore will be met with the 3 remaining justices who were there that fateful day.
Scalia, Kennedy, and Thomas are still there. They know they were wrong. They have witnessed the failure unfold before their eyes. Iraq, Katrina, Terry Schiavo... They have witnessed the complete utter collapse of the republican supply-side economic system. They have witnessed the mascot of their party go from the once mighty elephant, to the now ridiculed mascot 'NoNo' the dinosaur.
And now to work with till their retirement, the one man, who... if they had only followed the law and maintained a minimal respect for justice would have prevented the complete and utter collapse of the GOP, if they just sided with Al Gore, they would still have a political party.
Instead of this failure. And if they wouldn't at least do it for their party, why the fuck did Scalia, Kennedy, and Thomas not do it for their country? It was so obvious Bush was gonna totally fuck everything up.
Can you imagine Gore sitting next to those three bozos?
AL GORE: "Who is laughing now bitches???"
It would be GLORIOUS!!! Screw 'would'. Are we Ameri-CANs or Ameri-CAN'Ts? People would say:
"Ohh, you can't pick someone who is not an Appellate Judge."
Tonight, tonight, I say to the people of America, to Democrats and Republicans and independents across this great land: Enough. This moment, this moment, this is our chance to keep, in the 21st century, the American promise alive. And we are here -- we are here because we love this country too much to let the next four years look just like the last eight.
But the record's clear: Scalia, Kennedy, and Thomas have voted with George Bush 90 percent of the time.
Scalia, Kennedy, and Thomas like to talk about judgment, but, really, what does it say about your judgment when you think George Bush has been right more than 90 percent of the time?
