    There are no more dedicated seats, no Jewish seat, no woman's seat, probably not actually a black seat any more, certainly no Italian conservative seat!

    There is no constraint on the President based on the characteristics of the individual ceding the seat.

      •  But ... how about ex-Senator Clinton? THAT ... (0+ / 0-)

        ... would be a tough nomination for the Republicans to "veto" unless they have a Senate majority.

        Sure, they could ... and some Senators would surely try (like the Republican who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who an earlier Senate refused the confirm!). But that would be one helluva set of hearings and debates about the composition of the ultimate decider of constitutional questions!

        Obama and strong Democratic majorities in 2012!
