McCain to talk judges in North Carolina

(CNN) - On the day Democrats hold a crucial primary in North Carolina, John McCain will venture to the Tar Heel State to lay out his vision on what kind of judges he would appoint to the bench.

The McCain campaign tells CNN's Dana Bash the Arizona senator will deliver a speech next Tuesday at Wake Forrest University designed to help bolster his standing among conservatives with regard to the issue of judges.

Many conservatives took issue with McCain in 2005 for signing on to the so-called "gang of 14" in the Senate - a bipartisan group of senators who sought to find a compromise on some of President Bush's judicial nominees.

    Hillary is the only Change candidate. Obama will bring in the old guard (Kennedy, Kerry, Daschle among others) to advise on new judges. Hillary will use her own intelligence and judgement and be fair with whom she appoints.

    All we need are to more Justices like Bush picked. They will start giving corporations the right to vote. For all of the democrats who say they won't vote if their candidate doesn't win the nomination think about having the Supreme Count controlled by the EXTREME RIDIACAL RIGHT. Is that what you want? I want a court that is balanced not an ideology base of conservatives. I want a court that returns to the constitution.

    Two points define a line. One point is what John says and the other is what he does. The lies make up the line between points.

    Now I understand what "straight talk" means.

    Anyone who has bothered to LISTEN to a single thing Barack Obama has said or to view the actions of his life (or is aware that his own mother is white) would know that he would never appoint anyone like Louis Farrakhan or Jeremiah Wright as a justice. You people amaze me, you just grasp for any reason you can to discredit a decent man. Just admit that you flat out don't like him and don't have a great reason; don't resort to bombastic absurd characterization. It only convinces the weak of intellect...which should tell you something.
