Conservatives of all stripes have certain desires concerning the makeup and evolution of the Supreme Court. We may not agree on all details, but we are united in wanting the Court to act as a court should act that is, interpreting and applying the laws as passed by representatives of the people, the House of Representatives and the Senate. To be specific with regard to widely discussed issues, we want to see Roe vs. Wade and Kelo vs. New London overturned, and we want the establishment clause of our Constitution to be interpreted and applied as it was meant to be applied.
What we dont want is for liberal judges to continue to substitute their opinions on societal and political issues where the majority of our representatives has decided otherwise (i.e. partial-birth abortions) or where no vote has been taken at all, and we dont want government power to be expanded in areas our Founding Fathers specifically forbade.
The one case on which I think there would be wide agreement, and one where many liberals would join conservatives, is Kelo vs. New London.
