Supreme Court Vacancy: Kerry Urges Fight for Freedoms
The Fourth of July is a time for family, fun and fireworks.
But something happened today that ought to remind everyone what this holiday really symbolizes -- the freedom that makes America great.
That's exactly what hangs in the balance now that Sandra Day O'Connor has resigned from the Supreme Court.
This is no small deal. Over and over, she was the Justice who cast the critical vote in 5-4 cases deciding the most important issues in our nation.
Here's our bottom line for the johnkerry.com community heading into the holiday weekend: we can never let her be replaced by a Justice who does not respect the right to privacy and Roe v. Wade, and who doesn't understand the freedoms protected in our Constitution.
So, this weekend, as you enjoy the Fourth -- take a minute to think about what it means, and come back on Tuesday morning ready to fight for our freedom. It's all at stake now, and we need to come together more than ever.
