Supreme Court: What You Can Do RIGHT NOW
Whatever happens with the Supreme Court nomination battle that is about to ensue, it's going to happen fast. Here are some things you can do right now:
If you have a cell phone, sign up for People at the American Way's Mass Immediate Response site. This way, you'll be able to receive text message action items instantly as events break. (If you signed up during the nuclear option fight, you'll need to re-sign up.)
Also sign up with the Save the Court, another PFAW website devoted specifically to this issue.
Recruit friends and family members to the cause.
Write to the President, telling him he should choose a consensus candidate to replace O'Connor.
Contact your Senators to tell them the same thing.
Also I would add that its usual to contact the senator from your state that is already on the side of the progressive POV. Consider contacting contrary senators on the radical right, like Frist; let them know that there are americans that have deep convictions and those convictions should be weighed in whatever decisions that are made. Attack them at their strengths, don't let them continue to believe they live in ivory towers of ideology.
And finally my deepest regards to O'Connor , she lived up to, on balance the greatness of the court. One can only hope her successor does too.
