Bush has been packing the courts with extreme conservatives for the past six years....
That's my biggest complaint with him. In this country, the courts often have more of a direct impact on every day life than our elected leaders, as those leaders are usually too worthless and weak to take a real stand on anything.
We will not REALLY know how Bush affected this country for several years, once some matters of significance have come up before various courts. As for the war in Iraq and other assorted foreign policy blah blah -- I think it's impossible to say how history will view these situations. How Iraq will turn out is really going to depend on the next president, not Bush.
