Ginsberg

Continued from Page 20
no doubt that some senators
are saying, 'he's Jewish, so we
can't reject him.' The implica-
tion is, if you oppose him,
you're an anti-Semite. From
the administration's point of
view, it's a shrewd move."
Chris Gerston, director of
the conservative National
Jewish Coalition, took a dif-
ferent tack on the nomina-
tion. "The fact we need to
keep in mind is that Judge
Ginsburg is close to Attorney
General Meese," he said. "His
Jewishness had nothing to do
with the decision, as far as I
know."
The Meese factor is a basic
part of the story. In the days
before the nomination, there
were reports of a fierce strug-
gle between Meese and
Howard Baker, the White
House chief of staff who
favored a more moderate
candidate.
Gerston thinks Ginsburg
will fare better in the Senate
than Bork. "I don't think he
has the ambiguities that
Bork had," he said. "But if
the Administration feels the
Democrats can't mount as in-
tense a fight as they did
against Bork, they may be
surprised; my reading is that
they are ready to mount a dif-
ferent kind of campaign, but
no less intense a battle."
Gerston did see one Jewish
angle to the nomination.
"Since the Twenties, there
has traditionally been a
Jewish Justice on the
Supreme Court," he said.
"This has not been true since
Abe Fortas stepped down. So
from that point of view,
Jewish groups may look at
this as a positive develop-
ment."

Marc Pearl, executive direc-
tor of the Americans for
Democratic Action and form-
er Washington representative
for the American Jewish Con-
gress, emphasized the view
that the nomination repre-
sented the continued politici-
zation of the Supreme Court
selection process. "This is the
candidate of the right wing,"
he said. "lb me,it's highly
significant that Sen. Jesse
Helms threatened to fili-
buster if anyone else was
picked."

Still, Pearl thinks the
Jewish community will take
an objective look at the
nominee. "The Jewish com-
munity is going to approach
this one more cautiously," he
said. "I don't see anything in
his record or background that
would push Jewish groups to
support his nomination; the
question is, which ones will
come out in opposition. Right
now, we just don't know very
much about the man."
