Leslie Stahl interviewed Scalia and, to be quite honest, she seemed astounded at the legal concept of a judge not being able to rewrite law from the bench by interpreting the USC to mean whatever they wished it meant.

She also seemed pretty agitated that the SCCJ wasn't on board with judicial activism, and instead an adherent of the concept of original intent.

Mr. Scalia is always worth hearing. He's probably the most intelligent of the justices, by a wide margin. He is able to reason and willing to speak, in that order. He will never be identified as a liberal.

I enjoyed the piece. He is a very sharp man who seems to be able to get on with the liberals without hard feelings.

He has done a very good job on the court. I'm glad he decided not to retire at 65!

Too bad he can't tell the truth. It wasn't Gore who brought the court into it, it was Bush, when he tried to stop the recount in Florida.

You are right, you are more willing to tell the truth than Scalia. LOL, what a joke.

Gayle, better tune up your tripewriter and reload your sniper rifle, because the Dems are gonna blow it again, and for at least four more years it will still be your job to tell the pool players how it really is.

Hillary and Obama are secret agents of the Bush administration, on a mission to destroy the Democratic Party. And James Bond could not do it any better. They might be back in '12 to mop up stragglers.

And that is a blatant lie.

Gore took this to the legal system. Had Gore manned up and accepted the fact that he lost and lost again on the legal recount the nation could have avoided this disaster.

This was NOT an effort to stop a recount.

This was an effort to stop a selective recount of selected areas ... and the SCOTUS ruled correctly that elections must be decided by laws in effect on the day of election.

You cannot rewrite election law after the fact.

Gayle, please try to stick to the truth.
