GOP candidates split on Reagan choice of Sandra Day O'Conner

President Ronald Reagan made history by naming Sandra Day O'Conner as the first female Supreme Court justice, but two of the four remaining GOP presidential candidates said a few moments ago they would not have made the same selection.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Ron Paul of Texas indicated they would not have made the same selection. Romney said he preferred justices like Roberts, Scalia, and Thomas, while Paul opted for strict constructionists.
With Reagan's widow, Nancy Reagan, in the audience, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, neatly sidestepped the question while Arizona Sen. John McCain alone backed O'Conner, who is also from Arizona.

Why doesn't CNN let Huckabee or Paul speak? McCain and Romney are morons.
