Supreme Court: And the Nominees Are ...NewsweekOct. 4 issue - Be it George W. Bush or John Kerry, the newly elected president will likely have vacancies to fill on the Supreme Court. Four justices are older than 70, and rumors have swirled for years that Chief Justice William Rehnquist (80 on Oct. 1) and Sandra Day O'Connor (74) are near retirement. Since the court is closely split on many hot-button issues, vacancies could have profound implications. Who'll get nominated?



If Bush wins: Presidents love appointing "firsts," so the next one may tap a Hispanic (though Benjamin Cardozo, who served in the 1930s, was of Spanish and Portuguese descent). White House counsel and Bush fave Alberto Gonzales's stock is down on the left because of a controversial memo criticizing the Geneva Convention; he's suspect on the right because he's pro affirmative action and unlikely to attack Roe v. Wade. But that might make him confirmable. Another Hispanic is Emilio Garza, a conservative Fifth Circuit appellate judge put on that court by Bush's dad. To stoke his conservative base, Bush might consider Fourth Circuit appellate Judge J. Michael Luttig, a Justice Department official for Bush's father who helped prep Justices David Souter and Clarence Thomas for their confirmation hearings. Luttig's Fourth Circuit colleague, J. Harvie Wilkinson III, was deputy assistant attorney general of the Reagan Justice Department's civil-rights division. His courtly manner would make it hard for liberals to attack. Judge Samuel (Scalito) Alito on the Third Circuit is so nicknamed for having views similar to Antonin Scalia's.

If Kerry wins: Second Circuit appellate Judge Sonia Sotomayor, a Puerto Rican tapped by George H.W. Bush and promoted by Bill Clinton, is a candidate. Another first: David Tatel, a blind federal appellate judge in D.C., could be the first justice with a disability to be appointed. Confirmable moderates include Merrick Garland of the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. He served as top aide to the then Clinton Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick. In the Clinton Justice Department, Walter Dellinger headed the Office of Legal Counsel and then the solicitor general's office. First Circuit Judge Sandra Lynch, the first woman named to the federal appellate court on Kerry's home turf, will contend. Until recently, presidents often wanted justices with broad political experience. Does eight years as First Lady and four as a senator mean Justice Hillary Clinton?

I mentioned this a while ago. It very well could happen

She knows that Rudy will defeat her in '06 in the NY Senate race which will all but destroy her chance to run for the White House. It's the only way she can continue her campaign of Socialism in America

No way she'd ever be confirmed. Not even for a lower court.

Um, how many years has she been a judge? I believe you have to have some seriously good experience before they'd even consider you for the SCOTUS. There is absolutely no way the Senate would confirm her. It's just pre-election scare-mongering.

There are plenty of Supreme Court justices who never served a single day as a judge in any other court prior to their appointment to the SCOTUS.

Some recent examples: Earl Warren, Abe Fortas, Byron White, Arthur Goldberg, and Lewis Powell. On the current Court, Chief Justice Rehnquist had no previous judicial experience, though he did clerk for Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson.

True, but they were all practicing law when they were appointed. When was the last time Hitlery took a case to court?

Earl Warren was Gov. of California for 10 years before rising to the Court. Arthur Goldberg was Secretary of labor when appointed. Again, even recent practice of law has never been a requirement for appointment to the SCOTUS.

You don't have to have been a judge and obviously, you don't have to have any sense to be a Supreme Court judge. Just a pompous attitude that makes you sure you are mentally and socially superior to everyone else in the country.

Ah yes, the Rose Law Firm billing records....a landmark case if ever there was one.

God help us if "the smartest woman in the world" was appointed to the SCOTUS

+1 on for her getting shot down at the confirmation hearings. At least as Congress stands now.

Well, I was having a good day until I saw THIS!

Hitlery Klingon needs to be taken out of public life. She's a murdering bitch, who's gotten away with more stuff than any mob boss.

Hitlery needs a good


I bet she even laughed as she watch the Branch Davidians burn.

There's only one requirement to be a judge on SCOTUS....

"A knowledge of the law"


NO requirement to be a lawyer, judge, or to have ever passed the bar.


However, without being the above it might be kinda hard to demonstrate a knowledge of the law

Hasn't Bush been trying to get a supreme court nomination but the dems won't give him one...

I can just see the R senators giving a pass to this ugly skank.

No, there are currently no opening on the Supreme Court. There are several on lower courts that the Dems are blocking.

I did a quick check, and of the last 50 Supreme Court Justices, going back to William Rufus Day who joined the court in 1903, 22 (that's 44%) had NO previous judicial experience.
