'special interests' being the reason


The article doesn't go into much detail but sounds pretty weak to me. That said, I haven't had much time to research it. I'll have to try and catch up this weekend.


john kerry said that david souter was a right-wing judge in the mold of robert bork, who would end "freedom" for women in this country

that is to say: people will vote against someone simply because the other side suggested it
