'But what about judges?'

The trump card of every argument about whether John McCain deserves conservative support is bogus, says Bob Barr:
John McCain is warning conservatives that control of today's finely balanced Supreme Court depends on his election. Unfortunately, his jurisprudence is likely to be anything but conservative. . . .
Mr. McCain is a convenient convert to the cause of sound judicial appointments. He has never paid much attention to judicial philosophy, backing both Clinton Supreme Court nominees – Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He also participated in the so-called "Gang of 14," which favored centrist over conservative nominees as part of a compromise between President George W. Bush and Senate Democrats.
There's more where that came from -- and the fact that the Wall Street Journal published it indicates that the WSJ editorial board isn't unanimously pro-McCain.
