WASHINGTON "” The Supreme Court on Monday handed President Bush and the Republican Party two victories by clearing the way for corporate-funded broadcast ads before elections and by shielding the White House's "faith-based initiative" from challenge in the courts.
Both came in 5-4 rulings by the conservative majority led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.
The first decision will allow corporate and union money to play a bigger role in political campaigns.
