He wouldn’t have known what to look for or where. Someone THAT evil was more probably the pick of Dick Cheney and Karl Rove. Bush wouldn’t have thought up Citizens United five years in advance. Cheney and Rove would have, and I’m sure the subject was brought up in off-the-record job interviews held in small rooms away from the Oval Office (or maybe even away from DC). Alito’s enthusiasm for Citizens United, with a promise to uphold it if and when, surely paved his road to the short list, and, ultimately, his nomination.
