So, are we ready and enthusiastic over who President Trump will nominate?

Do we suspect the left will reject vigorously any named by President Trump?? Sure we do...

Will we be forced/required to use the gift of Harry Reid back 2013 when he brought in the nuclear option even though he was warned he would later regret it??? Most likely the dems will make that decision for us and we know that answer, unfortunately..

Were you impressed with Schumers admonishment to be responsible and wait until after the November elections??? Lololol, I found it hypocritical at the very least considering what they pulled 2013.. Was his admonishment an admission against interest since it was his party that brought it about to begin with?? Where was their responsible cord then???

While the final decision is being held close to the vest, Trump did tease reporters by saying “you can’t go wrong” with his “exceptional” final pick. Trump spoke to reporters Sunday afternoon, where he deliberated his decision amid frenzied speculation.

Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn’t locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9:00pm Monday announcement from the White House.

Trump tweeted later Sunday that he was looking forward to the announcement and said an “exceptional person will be chosen!” He is hoping to replicate his successful announcement of Justice Neil Gorsuch last year.

While Trump didn’t name the four, experts say top contenders for the role include federal appeals judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman. The White House has been preparing information materials on all four, who were part of a longer list of 25 names originally vetted by conservative groups.

The president has spent the days leading up to the decision mulling the pros and cons of the various options with aides and allies.

Trump expressed renewed interest in Hardiman — the runner-up when Trump nominated Gorsuch, said two people with knowledge of his thinking who were not authorized to speak publicly. But the situation appeared to remain fluid.

Hardiman has a personal connection to the president, having served with Trump’s sister on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. He also has a compelling personal story: He went to the University of Notre Dame as the first person in his family to go to college. He financed his law degree at the Georgetown University Law Center by driving a taxi.

Some conservatives have expressed concerns about Kavanaugh — a longtime judge and former clerk for Kennedy — by questioning his commitment to social issues like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more establishment choice. But his supporters cite his experience and wide range of legal opinions. He is also former law clerk to Kennedy, as is Kethledge.

Barrett — a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal judge last fall — excited social conservatives since she was questioned about her Roman Catholic faith in her nomination hearings last year, but her brief time on the bench has raised questions about her experience

Kethledge serves as a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio. He co-authored a book with Army veteran Mike Erwin of “The Positivity Project” published last year called “Lead Yourself First: Inspiring Leadership Through Solitude.”

Trump has enjoyed teasing details of his process in recent days, saying Thursday that he was down to four people and “of the four people, I have it down to three or two.”

Do you believe Trump’s pick, Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, will be partial to Trump???? He clerked for Justice Kenedy who was more middle of the road in his decisions..

“A graduate of Yale Law School, has taught at Harvard, Yale, and Georgetown, and served in President George W. Bush’s administration before being named to the Court of Appeals. Like Trump’s prior nominee, Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh has a gold-plated resume and Federalist Society credentials. And, also like Gorsuch, he’s a former law clerk to Justice Kennedy. (And he was hired to teach at Harvard Law School by then-Dean, now Justice, Elena Kagan).

Speaking after Trump’s announcement, Kavanaugh stressed lessons learned from his mother’s experience teaching in largely African-American high schools in the District of Columbia, and from her later experience going to law school and serving as a prosecutor, and his father’s night-school legal education and later law practice. He stressed judicial independence, and fidelity to statutes and the Constitution, interpreted as written, not as imagined.

Separation of powers doctrine

He stressed that the Constitution’s doctrine of separation of powers isn’t just a technicality, but supports individual liberty, and he noted ...”that a majority of his clerks have been women. He stressed his daughters’ interest in reading and sports.

Having clerked for Kennedy I suspect he will emanate a powerful decision making base because of his time with Kennedy.. After all He was one doing his legal research for Kennedy to then draw his own assessment of the issue...

If you were a sitting Senator would you vote on his credentials and experience or would you reject him because he is yet another appointed by Trump??
