What Judges are worth voting for in '06?
I have my absentee ballot in front of me and have no idea who any of these judges are.

Is there any place I can go for information about them?

1. I think I'm gonna use this source
http://www.pridesourcevotes.com/district/pridesourcevot...

Does it show the appropriate amount of judges compared to your ballot?

3. The UAW is endorsing Cavanaugh
I am torn about Maura Corrigan-I know she's a pawn of the insurance industry and a republican, but her order to the local courts to help the Department find runaway foster kids really has helped us find them. No one else ever ordered them to do that before, and it really has worked. Even if I don't vote for her, she should get credit for that.

I probably won't vote for her in the long run, but I am considering it. I also think that Bush should have picked her for the USSC instead of his botched Harriet Myers nomination (I'm not saying I would have picked her, I'm just saying he should have picked her).

She gave THOSE folks that much money.

Just remember. GWB signed the "no call list" bill.Love the bill.

Would never vote for Bush.

4. Correct.
Corrigan is a right wing hack.
