    I think Trump will pick Kavanaugh although I prefer Tom Hardiman, who seems more moderate.

    I'd prefer stan lee.
    Hillary Clinton gets to sit home and watch not only the choice that could have been hers, Kavanaugh is the Republican Hitman who trashed her husband with all the lurid sex details during the Monica Lewinski Affair.

    If the Republicans hold the line, boom goes the dynamite. It's over.

    not sure why you keep bringing hillary up- yes she could have. lots of things could have happened, but we should deal with what did happen rather that what could have.

    imo the most dangerous part of kavanaugh's choice is that he can decide whether muller's investigation can go on, and whether the president can be indicted. roe vs wade will be overturned for sure. that's almost a lost cause at this point. gay marriage will probably be revoked. again- lost cause.

    at this point, getting trump out of power is, imo, the only way to stop the damage being done. anything else is just temporary

    p.s. trump just pardoned the two orgeon ranchers who started the arson fires that spreed to federal land. now, if this were a democrat who pardoned the native american water protectors in standing rock, i'm sure the senate would've thrown a fit- so whether
    pocahontas and chuck can must enough courage to even sound a peep against this one

    a ludicrous argument from Democrats powerless to stop the confirmation process.
    Iím sorta pleased with Kavanaugh. no doubt a conservative judge, but one who seems reasonable and extremely well qualified to serve

    You can't like Kavanaugh and not like Trump.

    The mid-terms are effectively a referendum on whether the US continues to have democracy and the rule of law in any meaningful way, just like the recent elections in Hungary and Turkey. Unless the Dems get at least a blocking majority in one house it is hard to see what will stop the US from going the way of those countries. Unfortunately, it's a referendum in which one side starts with a huge advantage due to gerrymandering and voter suppression, which is a sign of how far we've already moved from true democracy.

    Every member of the Court and most presumptive candidates are going to be qualified in the sense that they attended Harvard or Yale Law and likely clerked for federal appellate judges. That makes them extremely intelligent, capable of interpreting statutes and with the exception of Alito, of writing eloquently. Even Scalia could seem reasonable at times. However, in an unreasonable moment he argued that Colorado was permitted to amend its constitution to make passing civil rights laws to protect lgbt members illegal. I urge you to read his dissenting opinion in Romer v. Evans if you want an idea of the sort of sophistry that characterizes conservative jurisprudence. According to Scalia the types of laws banned by Colorado were intended to keep lgbt individuals from seeking preferential treatment under the law. Scalia characterized lgbt members seeking anti-discrimination protection as a powerful lobby seeking systematic advantage. Not reasonable or even close to it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romer_v._Evans

    My understanding is that Kavanaugh believes that banning automatic weapons violates a fundamental right and is akin to banning speech. How is that reasonable? https://www.thedailybeast.com/brett-...banning-speech
