I agree with the last comment concerning Betty Fletcher versus Willy Fletcher. She's definitely more liberal than he is--a "liberal lioness," in A3G's words. The younger Judge Fletcher is not as hard-core as his mother.

Perhaps Judge W. Fletcher wants to seem (relatively) moderate, so he can someday be appointed to the Supreme Court?

Not to cut too fine a line, but I don't think Willy Fletcher is as liberal as the "B" Fletcher. Not saying that W is conservative, mind you, just that calling B "equally liberal" doesn't do justice to her career versus his.
