This election will be about judicial nominations!

This is going to be an election about judicial nominations.

As reality sinks in, Obama is starting to sound very different from the "hope and change" candidate of the Dem primaries.

The "yes we can" screamers will be very disappointed. On Iraq, there won't be any differences.

BO will carry out Bush's plan. Why? Because he does not want to send troops back.

On Afghanistan, BO will be a lot more cautious than his "we took our eye off the ball" rhetoric.

BO knows, or should know, that Afghanistan is a terrible terrain to fight a land war.

It would be a huge error to get into a massive land war in Afghanistan. The key is to follow the Petraeus' counter insurgency strategy that worked so well in Iraq. Of course, it will be modified because Iraq and Afghanistan. However, the mission will be similar.

Also, BO should know that the Dems do not have the stomach to fight a prolonged war. It will be the Dems who will turn on BO when the fighting gets tough in Afghanistan.

Overall, Obama's foreign policy will be Bush's foreign policy.

BO will have as much trouble working with the Europeans as Clinton did. Last, but not least, the Europeans don't have troops. How can you work with people who don't have troops?

On domestic policy, BO can't fulfill any of his promises after the UD$ 750 billion rescue plan.

Frankly, we don't have the money to add another entitlement such as universal health care.

We can't tax the rich because someone needs to fund our government. In fact, BO is going to get very fond of the "rich" because he is going to need every dime in taxes that they pay.

What are the differences? The biggest, and only one, will be appointments to the Supreme Court.

Our next president will add 2-3 justices to the Supreme Court. This is where the candidates will leave their mark on history.

If we add conservative justices then we will likely reverse Roe v Wade and send it back to the states. Also, there won't be any same sex marriage imposed by judges.

Beyond values, conservative justices will issue better decisions on states' rights, national security and business issues.

We know where McCain stands on life, Roe v Wade and same sex marriage:

"John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned......

The family represents the foundation of Western Civilization and civil society and John McCain believes the institution of marriage is a union between one man and one woman...

As President, John McCain will nominate judges who understand that their role is to faithfully apply the law as written, not impose their opinions through judicial fiat."

In simple terms, voters decide issues like abortion, same sex marriage and other concerns about values.

Judges interpret the law not make it! That's going to be the biggest consequence of this election.
