This is easily the best political news of the year:
“A list of 25 names contains one person who will be President Donald Trump’s pick for the newly created vacancy on the Supreme Court after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement Wednesday.
“I would think he would want to have someone confirmed before the midterms,” attorney Leonard Leo who has served as an advisor on the Supreme Court to President Trump told ABC News. “So that there can be a full nine numbers on the court beginning in October and it’s doable most of these confirmations take about 70 to 100 days.” …”
Kennedy will be gone before the midterms. His replacement should be confirmed before the midterms too. So, it is a done deal that the Supreme Court is about to dramatically change. The question before voters in November will be the composition of the Senate in the event Ginsberg dies or retires.
