Executive power, not abortion, behind Bush Supreme Court choices

Charlie Savage makes an excellent argument to this end.

He points out that John Roberts, for example, has defended both Cheney’s “unitary executive” idea and executive-branch secrecy. He has similar info on Alito, and even a little on would-have-been Justice Miers.

Anyway, give it a read; it’s good.

And, this definitely does NOT bode well for the illegal wiretapping lawsuits, when they get to SCOTUS.
