Six reasons why I’m not blogging about who will replace Justice Stevens

by on April 19, 2010  •  In Supreme Court

I don't know who the President will nominate.

I'm tired of reading completely predictable speculations by other people who also don't know who the President will nominate.

I don't know the sexual orientation of any of the most frequently mentioned possibilities.

I think it ought to be Kathleen Sullivan but I don't think it will be.

If the three front runners are indeed Garland, Kagan and Wood, I doubt that it will make much difference to future legal doctrine which one is selected.

I am still completely floored by the possibility that anyone cares whether there is a Protestant on the Court.
