Democrats seek court nominee with 'big heart'

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate DemoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid cratic Leader Harry Reid urged President Bush on Saturday to say "no to the far right" and nominate to the Supreme Court someone who will rule with "an open mind and a big heart."

"We need an independent thinker who will follow the Constitution, not a knee-jerk conservative crusader who will march in lock-step to the tune of partisan pressure groups," Reid of Nevada said in his party's weekly radio address.

Fine with me as long as the "big heart" is tempered with a "big brain".
