Nan Aron’s Wishes

by Jonathan H. Adler

Nan Aron is currently quoted on the Alliance for Justice website urging President Bush to appoint “someone like Justice O’Connor” to the Supreme Court — remember, that’s the Justice O’Connor who joined the majority in Lopez, Morrison, Seminole Tribe, and Garrett, who supports the constitutionality of school vouchers, who dissented in Kelo and Raich, who was not particularly friendly to criminal defendants or tort plaintiffs, who opposed the use of numerical quotas in college admissions, and who (despite her pro- Roe holdings) voted to uphold quite a few restricitons on abortion that Aron opposes. Will Aron continue to sing that tune if Bush nominates Clement?
