An inexact Thought Experiment

This is a line that I hear used from time to time, most recently with the Supreme Court ruling over late term abortions.  “If Gore had been president, this would not have happened.”
For the record, if Gore had been elected President in 2000, we would currently be in year 3 of the first George W Bush administration.  Think about it.
At any rate, I think a couple of the ‘liberal’ judges might have retired during Gore’s four year term.  Maybe.  Which would have left Bush to replace his two Justices during … right around when he did in this version of reality…

Assuming we had a President Bush in there and not a — say, President McCain.  In which case President McCain would have replaced those two Justices … right about when he did.
