    While I think she'd have made a good justice, we need to do the sort of things the Republicans did: nominate someone who's going to be around for a very long time, to counter the influence of Clarence Thomas, who was in his early 40's when he became a justice and who we're going to be stuck with until goodness knows when.

      Oddly enough, though I would be happy to have her as president, I'd rather not see her on the court.  Apart from her age, she's not as progressive and pro-civil liberties as I want to see in a SCOTUS nominee.  

      •  Your description of her is probably correct (0+ / 0-)

        However, one thing she has going for her in that area is that, whatever her beliefs, she's very much a pragmatist and not an ideologue. For that reason she would probably be far more capable of seeing past her own prejudices and applying the law correctly than some others we could both name. Like Scalia for instance.
