We're all geared up for whatever Supreme Court nominations come our way this summer, and Ezra Klein makes some interesting points regarding the definition of a conservative, and who will have a say: "It's worth remembering that, though the Christian Right is the loudest member of the GOP's coalition choir, they're not the only one. Hell, they may not even be the most important one. That plaudit probably goes to Big Business. And what business wants, the Church may not." (Ezra Klein)
