WHY IT MATTERS

As if any were needed, here’s proof that the Clintonistas who are planning on either sitting out the election or (even worse) voting for McCain are just being plain irresponsible:

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court has ruled that foreign terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay have rights under the U.S. Constitution to challenge their detention in civilian courts.

The justices, in a 5-4 ruling Thursday, handed the Bush administration its third setback at the high court since 2004 over its treatment of prisoners who are being held indefinitely and without charges at the U.S. naval base in Cuba.

“We hold these petitioners do have the habeas corpus privilege,” Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote for the court majority in the 70-page opinion.

Does anyone believe that McCain would appoint SCOTUS justices who would have voted with the majority?

UPDATE: Glenn Greenwald offers up a very good analysis.
