#1 Some have speculated that Kamala might be on the short list. Can you imagine that?
That would open up the VP position for someone else - perhaps Hillary.... I'm sure if she got that poor Biden would become depressed, even suicidal.

#2 AOC or Whoopy. Perhaps both, two for one deal.

#3 Is Maxine Waters a lawyer - Just asking....☻
or how about Rep. Teresa Fernandez (D-NM-3) for the 1st Native America on the SCOTUS?

Given the SUPREME COURT carries so much authority and control over our rights and daily lives.

Shouldn't the pick be the BEST POSSIBLE ---> Constitutionally Focused <--- person, and not limited to some Political Promise made for votes?

Such a promise clearly eliminates 100's of more qualified individuals, all more focused on the constitution as written and how to adapt it for "social" issues.

#4 Now they're saying it's going to be either Judge Leondra Kruger (CA Supreme Court) or Judge Ketanji Jackson (D.C. Court of Apeals). Each is a former Supreme Court clerk.

Kruger is known as a "cautious incrementalist" with a respect for precedent. Lefty publication Vox says:

In a 2018 interview with the Los Angeles Times, Kruger explained that her approach to the law “reflects the fact that we operate in a system of precedent.” She said that she aims “to perform my job in a way that enhances the predictability and stability of the law and public confidence and trust in the work of the courts.”

#5 Actually, I'm expecting the second coming of Merrick Garland since she just changed her name to Merica Garland and identifies as a black woman:

Plessy? Slaughterhouse?

#7 They all "evolve" quickly once confirmed. Look at Roberts, Kavanaugh and Barrett. All have moved left since appointed.

#8 Whoever the dems confirm will be a lock step liberal, which means no actual change. The issue to watch is which party is in power when Thomas retires or passes.

#17 Stacey Abrams has a sister Leslie Abrams Gardner who is a U.S. District Judge of the United States District Court for the Middle District of Georgia. Local news here is touting her as a possibility.

#19 Rachel Dolezal, or why you need me in the US Senate to name nominees.

Duchess of Suxxit is a fine choice, too.

#20 We already have a 'wise Latinx" who (rhetorically) put 100,000 kids in the hospital with covid. Do we need any more of that caliber?

#21 Think Politically Deeper.
Any (R) or (I) or (S) not voting to approve any female black judge no matter how far left. Will be plastered all over the MEDIA and labeled a RACIST. All nice and neatly done just before Mid-Term elections.

That's worth at least $5M to 10M in free advertising.
