In his famous cell phone conversation, Senator Schumer outlined his strategy on judicial appointments:
Schumer went on to say how hard it was to predict how a Supreme Court justice would turn out: “Even William Rehnquist is more moderate than they expected. The only ones that resulted how they predicted were [Antonin] Scalia and [Ruth Bader] Ginsburg. So most of the time they've gotten their picks wrong, and that's what we want to do to them again.”Congratulations, Senator Schumer. I suppose that is why they pay you the big bucks.
