Round 2! Vote for YOUR favorite SCOTUS nominee.
Edited on Sat May-02-09 11:00 AM by johnfunk
Round 1 is complete, and the top four contenders are:
  • Vincent Bugliosi
  • Rachel Maddow
  • Hillary Clinton
  • Patrick Fitzgerald
We've posted twelve more names -- some mentioned by the "chattering class," some just plain popular, some highly-unlikely-but-what-the-hey.

Go to the home page of American Politics Journal and vote for the SCOTUS nominee of your choice! Ends Monday noon...

2. Never underestimate the power of "name recognition."
If more folks recognized Judy Scheindlin as "Judge Judy," I suppose she'd be leading. (Sheesh, people are fucking stupid.)

3. The irony is, Maddow did well in round one, and...
... I believe she'd actually make a terrific justice.

6. Carol Lam
US attorney fired by Bushco for not towing the party line in her job
Smarts, competence, integrity, didn't bow to political pressure, high performer.
As a bonus, female and oriental to increase diversity.
