Any successful nominee should possess both the temperament to interpret the law and the wisdom to do so fairly. The next Supreme Court Justice should have a record of protecting individual rights and a strong willingness to put aside any political agenda.

任何一位成功的提名者都应该既有解释法律的气质,又有公正解释法律的智慧。下一任最高法院大法官应该有保护个人权利的记录,并有强烈的意愿搁置任何政治议程。

就连布什总统也提到,有必要取缔公司向高管发放贷款的做法。奇怪的是,当总统还是一名公司职员时,他从公司借了几笔贷款。
