    In the news....
    Speculation ramps up about Kamala Harris as Joe Biden's Supreme Court pick

    Aside from her lack of constitutional scholarship, it's a really
    bad idea to put another prosecutor in the SCOTUS, & miss
    the opportunity to appoint a criminal defense lawyer.
    I'd prefer someone with an eye towards civil rights, especially
    when dealing with cops & courts. With police reform stalling,
    let's have a better advocate for civilians.

    An opinion from 2017....
    There's been no criminal defense lawyer on the Supreme Court since 1991. That’s a problem.

    It feels like an out. Biden isn't going to run in 2024 allegedly and will retire. Harris doesn't really have a good chance of running and may be trying to get what she can get. Then we get to see another fiasco like in 2020. Which will be entertaining as always until somehow the worst most milk toast centrist do nothing candidate emerges.

    Sort of a consolation prize?
    SCOTUS is too important for that.
    It matters what orientation a justice has.
    I'd like someone strong on civil liberties.

    I'd prefer someone brighter, more experienced,
    & with a better record on civil liberties. Obama
    was the biggest persecutor of whistle blowers
    in history.

    I mean I agree that she doesn't deserve that position. Technically I don't believe she deserves her current position.

    She's qualified to be VP.
    SCOTUS is different, demanding very strong particular skills.
    And we need someone who's been on the defendant's side.
    Police reform will be an uphill battle.

    I'm assuming you have heard there are more qualified black women Biden is considering. The sister of the former candidate for governor of ?....(troubled memory) Abrams is the family name.

    Kamela Harris to the SC? Sounds like nothing more than right-wing baseless speculation, formulated on Fox and amplified by the equally repugnant New York Post.
