The Bench

What we need to know about a nominee for the Supreme Court is what their judicial reasoning entails. What logic path do they use to arrive at their opinions? Because that's what they are: a personal opinion based on the law and the facts. Some with certain ideological leanings suspend logic for belief. It has been my experience that conservatives do this by definition, or default if you will. They favor some facts over others that carry more weight, yet go against their beliefs. This will be tough for America now, as we have a battle over ideas and logic paths now. "Legislating from the bench" is any decision a conservative doesn't like. All decisons at this level amount to a legislation by proxy.
