I predict the PBA law is upheld 5-4, the race cases are reversed 5-4, and the global warming case is upheld 5-4, in other words, the conservatives win all the major cases. Of course, with Kennedy in the mix, there's never a sure thing, but he's good on aff action/race cases, he wrote a very strong dissent in the pba case a few years back, and i think on the global warming case, Roberts will be able to at least get him to agree to a ruling that amounts to a victory.
I agree on the PBA. Not sure on the race cases. They might split the baby there unless they overrule the 2003 cases. As for the global warming case, it seems Kennedy has turned to the left when it comes to environmental issues, so I'm not sure at all that we're going to win that one.
Conservatives have been fighting for 10 years for a PBA ban. I hope the hard work in electing Bush and a GOP Senate finally pays off.
