Thought for the day
Here's a webpage on existing judicial vacancies.
It'd be fun if some progun organizations were to start to push good, solidly qualified candidates for those posts. There's two openings in the DC Circuit and one on the 4th Circuit (Richmond). Hmm... Prof. Bob Cottrol and Prof. Nelson Lund and Dean Polsby could split those. Two in the 3d Circuit (Philadelphia, I think) ... Prof. Nick Johnson. One in the 5th Circuit -- the trial judge in Emerson might do nicely.
I can't vouch for the last, but all of the others would be very, very, hard to oppose. Any one of them knows more about constitutional law, or any other form of law, than does the entire Judiciary Committee (both parties included, I might add).
