Samuel Alito has finally been confirmed as Sandra Day O’Conner’s replacement on the Supreme Court.  The fight, both internal against the Miers nomination and external against the Democrats, has been well worth it.  This moves the court a little bit further towards a constructionist imterpretation of the constitution, but not reliably.  Justice Kennedy becomes the new wild card.  If Bush gets another nomination, and he probably will, the fur is really going to fly because it will be that nomination which could make the court reliably constructionist.
