1. I believe you're right
Down to 5-4 if Roberts gets in.

2. And if (when) Renquist Goes, That Won't Change Anything Then
It makes me feel a bit better about the situation, but not much.

4. Kennedy was the swing vote in 92
he was going to vote to reverse RvW, but got cold feet at the last minute. He could go either way depending on what case comes up.

5. heard that in 1973, Roe v. Wade was 7-2
and the justices were somewhat blindsided by the reaction from the emerging Religious Right.
