Judge Jeanine Pirro  works for me on the SCOTUS.

Even the THOUGHT of that would make thousands of LIB's head implode.

yours, satx

I was thinking that. I like her well enough. I THINK she is a constitutionalist.
But one problem I see is her TV history.
They will pick apart EVERYTHING she has ever said.
The other issue is the GOP. They need to make sure WHOEVER they pick will be OK with the "R's because they will need every vote. ( WITHOUT counting on mccain. )

I think that was one advantage Gorsuch had. He wasnt really known OUTSIDE the court.
They couldnt find/create  any dirt on him. 

I heard today they are announcing the nominee  end of July and will vote on it this fall.
SO Im sure they are going to try for a squeaky clean judge.

Be interesting to see who they pick.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

End of July is when Kennedy said he was leaving.  I’d like to see Congress take action before this Fall.  I realize they’ve got to “investigate” him (or her) and then have their hearing.  But I just don’t want to see the Dems create some kind of roadblock or quagmire that bogs thing down.

They will try an sandbag everything, thats for certain.

But I dont think they can stop it.
Mitch can always "nuke" em again cant he?
I think thats WHY they are trying to get it done before elections.

I hope there is no delay either.

But some things that are in our favor: The supreme court session for this year is over at the end of June. And a term of the Supreme Court begins, by statute, on the first Monday in October.
We also know that Mitch McC said he wanted it done "before the mid terms". So if he/she is named by July 9, there is plenty of time for vetting and interviews, and a vote to be taken by the time the next Supreme court session intervenes. Therefore, no 4-4 votes and he/she can be seated before action starts.

The question is if the Republicans will decide that they want to use the empty seat to motivate the base to vote at midterms, or use a successful placement to energies and encourage the vote.
I'm not sure what is the right call. Probably get it done, so that if anything crazy happens in the senate, the conservative judge is already seated. I'm a "make hay while the sun shines" kind a guy.

I see the point.

JMHO.

I think the R's are better off to show their bases they are actually DOING SOMETHING, to  get votes. Their inaction and foot dragging in the past has people mad enough already.
They are already skating on thin ice IMO.

I think the general thinking from the "R" voter is, either get on board with the POTUS, or get lost.

The democrats will try to stop it.

The problem isn't the democrats....  with only 51 votes, it's the republicans Trump has to worry about.

Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska are the real problem.

I had read she is also 68 years old. That may be an issue for some. .

However he may not be the best choice for the strongest 2A supporter.

I think he will appease alot more people with a strong PROVEN conservative constitutionalist.

He was sent to Washington precisely because he convinced many he wouldnt play politics.

This is far too important to be playing political race or gender cards just to kiss a few liberal asses.

They didnt put him in office. Conservatives did.

He is of Indian decent and qualified sorta like a win win.

The administration has moved up the announce date to July 9.  I would expect that there has been a plan w/ Senate leadership in the works since at least Gorsuch's nomination to rapidly push these through. 
It also looks like Mike Lee isn't at the top of the short list but the good news is Obama-supporters will be thoroughly pissed with a non-leftwing choice.
