yeah, but he was an actual judge. i think the case of having no background as an actual judge pretty much negates or even slightly outweighs the "constitutional scholar" honorific.

Historically I don't think that's uncommon at all. There is currently at least one first-time justice, and I'm pretty sure she never taught the subject at Harvard and was never the first black president. I don't think Rehnquist was either.

There is plenty of precedent for non-judges to be appointed to the court. Something like 40 Justices didn't. Warren didn't. Rehnquist didn't. Being "constitutional scholar" wasn't an honorific, it was his job for over a decade. Being a professor of constitutional law is exactly the type of expertise you'd want in a SCOTUS. and he taught University of Chicago, for christ's sake, not a community college.. That, and his resume as, you know, the president, would make him more than qualified.

Obama graduated from harvard, he didn't teach there. Jesus christ, know the history of the president. This isn't some geek like Taft or Harding or something, this is the sitting president.

I think the main reason that non-judges have lost fashion, over say, Constitutional Law Professors or lawyers that specialize in constitutional law, is the overt politicization of the nomination process. Judges have a clear record of the decisions they've made, that a president can look at, and be assured he is nominating a party hack. No one wants to nominate another Souter these days, thinking they have a conservative justice and then getting the hot dose once they are in office and no way of getting them out.

3) Not sure why you're so confident it would be a liberal spot opening up. Scalia is 78, Kennedy 77 and Thomas is 66 and could have a heart attack any moment.


Nailed it!

I don't know. I would have agreed with you once upon a time. Obviously trying to justify how Obama is not qualified while Brown is would be a lot more public and hilarious than things like the budget which no one actually cares about, but I think the right has kind of settled into a Dog the Bounty Hunter situation. When Dog used the N-word and admitted to his racism, almost everyone thought he was a piece of shit for it. But no one who has a problem with that would watch Dog the Bounty Hunter anyway, so who cares. I think we are past the point where republican voters hold their representatives accountable for anything. The only way that happens is if they cooperate with an actual solution to a problem, in which case they run the risk of getting primaried by a racist dentist who has never held office, or something along those lines.
