Have an opinion?

If you have an opinion -- one way or the other -- about President Bush's nomination of Samuel Alito to replace Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court, you're one step ahead of Sue Kelly. While Conservatives are celebrating and liberals are in a state of mourning, Sue is amazingly opinion-free.

In a short article in today's Hudson Valley News, Kelly managed to avoid giving any sense of her opinion on Bush's decision to choose Alito. That's not only different from just about every other politician asked today, but it's also more than a bit difficult to believe.

Then again, anyone who's received a letter from Sue knows that she (or at least her staff) has mastered the art of saying absolutely nothing. Indeed, one could argue that has been a key part of her continued success: making conservatives think she's on their side and convincing moderate voters she's one of them.

One more interesting tidbit about the Supreme Court and Sue: she actually seems to believe that Harriet Miers' decision to withdraw her name was her own choice. And the bear Mountain bridge is being sold to make way for waterfront condos.
