      see a Progressive Judge nominated, because the Republicans simply won't allow it. So unless Obama can find a sleeper with no paper trail we're looking at former Senators or District or Appeals Court Judges with no ideological bent one way or another. I'm fairly confident he'd pick a Democrat, but not one visibly ideological.

      That's what happens when you have a Democratic Senate with no spine.

      we would consider a moderate would certainly be considered a socialist/communist by the GOP base and its representatives in the Senate.

      Kinda like Obama.
