Kennedy’s retirement a boon to blue state Republicans

Because California voters are rabidly pro-choice, Republicans are left out in the cold.  The Republican base is pro-life, and wants Republican politicians to embrace that position.  It’s a no win situation.

But if Kennedy retires, Roe v. Wade will be overturned, and each state will be free to adopt its own laws on abortion.  In California, I expect the pro-choice position will be enshrined in the state constitution.  As such, it’s not an issue.  It’s settled.  A candidate’s personal position is irrelevant, unless they’re foolish enough to favor taking it out of the constitution.

That’s the theory, anyway.  In California, that’s all Republicans have got.
