How do you find Ginsburg anymore liberal than Breyer? And, how do you find Ginsberg MORE liberal than Souter? Furthermore, Alito, on his first day on the job, broke ranks with the conservative Scalia, Thomas, and Roberts. He allowed a stay of execution where the conservatives wanted to lift it... One thing about the jurists, is that they respect the rule of law, and they respect precedent. They know they can't overrule previous law just because they would have ruled differently. It's going to take a RADICAL conservative shift on the court to undue the influence of the mid 20th cenutry justices. Slowing it down, as Rehnquist succesfully did, is easier, (and probably correct), but I highly doubt we'll see reversals. The nature of the court is the recognize rights, not to take away regonzied rights.
