    to mind?  Why not Thurgood Marshall?  That says something right there.

    And he did come up with four more names, so no, I'm not buying the "uhhhh, think of a Justice, any Justice!" excuse.

      he was grasping for a name, any name, but then he started remembering who they were.

      i'm not defending him, I think his answer was a bunch of bullcrap and i don;t believe a word he says.

      but his "long thoughtful pause" just looked to me like someone who for a moment could not think of the names of the justices and their political impact

      it never occurred to me until your comment that the question who would you consider a "model justice" did not have to be answered with the name of a currently sitting Justice...
