WashPost: Bush's judges as governor

Today's Washington Post has an interesting article on the types of judicial appointments George W. Bush made while Texas governor.  It says there was no focus on ideology other than that the candidates would be good judges in interpreting the law rather than pushing an ideological bent.  It claims that he brought more of a centrist balance to his appointments than had been the case previously.  It argues that Bush's commitment to appointing right-wing bound judges came only in 2000 as he was seeking the presidency.
