In terms of total size, I suppose one would have to consider Mount Kennedy.

If Durbin didn't have to worry about the feminist vote, he wouldn't give two hoots about Roe vs. Wade. No principles, no true beliefs. Just whatever will get him the most.

I wonder why abortion is the non-negotiable doctrine for the democratic party?

You should include polygamy.........

Actually, having more than one wife is specifically prohibited by the Constitution.

It violates the husband's Constitutional protection under the "Cruel and Unusual Punishment" clause. ;-)

I just basically want to know that if the next case involving privacy and personal freedom came up, what he believes," the Illinois Democrat claimed.

When Reagan was president, the dims decried, and the lame stream press echoed, that it would be terrible for a president to have a litmus test on nominees.

Does anyone realize that there is no right to privacy in the Constitution? I believe in Roe they cited a LOWER court's finding of a right to privacy. That is why I hate judicial activism. Plus how does privacy relate to abortion anyways? Does that mean my mom can kill me as long as she does it in her own home?

Keep it up, Dick, and you will be the first incumbent Democrat Senator from Illinois to be defeated in the general elections in history.

Please, keep it up.

In a real sense Durbin's position sheds light on how librals think, which is to say they don't, rather they 'feel' their way thru life and assume everyone else does too.

The whole idea here is that a Judge needs to way the evidence and base his decision using the Constitution as his or her guide. But Durbin's libralized paranoid thinking implies that if a Judge has a personal opinion then that opinion will guide his judgement and not the evidence, Constitution and his intellect.'

Yes, a salvo from the Vatican to withhold communion from politicians openly pro-choice would be welcome. Ooops. I guess we already had that statement. OK, let's see it enforced and reported on by the More-than-Socialist Media.

Having a minimum IQ score to seek public office would disqualify Durbin.

The irony is that Dickie Durbin wouldn't be in the Senate today if he hadn't first been elected to Congress as a PRO-LIFE Democrat when he was running in a swing district back in the 70s and 80s.

I guess Dickie Durbin was "not qualified" to be a Congressman in 1978 by his OWN limus test of "recognizing" the "fundemental right to privacy" in the Constitution post Roe v. Wade.

What a blowhard RAT partisan. This should definitely be an issue in his next campaign. I doubt you will find any Republican who says someone is unqualified for a government position based SOLELY on that person's view of "a woman's right to choose". For instance there are a number of officials who are pro-choice but conservative on everything else. And while I don't like pro-choice Stephen Breyer, I think he IS "qualified" for the Supreme Court (as is Sandra Day O'Conner and Anthony Kennedy). To be unqualified you have to be a real nutjob like Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
