Monday, I shared with you my Brown University speech setting out what needs to be said and done at this critical moment for our country. Today, in that same spirit of clarity and conviction, I want to tell you how I will vote on the nomination of John Roberts to serve as Chief Justice of the United States.If you're still interested in reading more of John Kerry's position, you can find it here. I truly wish that I believed that John Kerry's vote is something based on actual principles, but it stinks of nothing more than posturing for his already failed attempt to run again in 2008. We here at PTF have already laid our Flesh Lesser Award on John Kerry... this move mirroring Harry Reid's simply proves why he deserves it.
I will vote against this vitally important nomination.
Win or lose on this vote, it is essential that we act on our deepest convictions. And I refuse to vote for a Supreme Court nominee who came before the Senate intent on demonstrating his ability to deftly deflect legitimate questions about his views, opinions and philosophy.
John Roberts owed the American people far more than that.
If he is confirmed - and he may well be - the Roberts Court will shape the course of constitutional law for decades to come. It will decide dozens of cases that will define the depth and breadth of freedom in America - our commitment to civil rights, our dedication to civil liberties, our devotion to privacy and a woman's right to choose.
