Today on NPR’s Morning Edition, Legal Affairs Correspondent Nina Totenberg discussed the impact of the Alito nomination:

Steve Inskeep:

How high are the stakes now for this nomination to replace Sandra Day O’Connor on the Supreme Court?

Nina Totenberg:

Well, if Judge Alito is confirmed, the court will move dramatically, dramatically to the right. There are conservatives who are less conservative than he, and I guess one could’ve said that with Harriet Miers you didn’t know, so liberals could hope that she would be a little more to the left. There’s no question where he is.
