Professor Robert George of Princeton

Professor Robert George of Princeton also believes that, for Senate Republicans, this is “no time for magnanimity,” either when it comes to judicial nominees or to the legislative agenda that Republicans campaigned on this year. George argues persuasively that President Bush should revive the nomination of Judge Priscilla Owen whose nomination was killed by Democrats solely because she did not tow the liberal line on abortion. Not surprisingly, George offers far better counsel than the Washington Post (see below) when he concludes “there should be no compromising to appease left-wing Democrats. What we should do, rather, is learn from them. They are not timid about exercising political power when they come into possession of it. Nor should Republicans be.”
