I have to point this out because I bleed maize and blue: All three Supreme Court candidates nominated by the Michigan Democratic Party have ties to the University of Michigan. Connie Kelley attended the University as an undergrad before going on to Wayne State’s Law School; Shelia Johnson graduated from Michigan Law; and Bridget Mary McCormack has been a professor at the Law School for the past fourteen years, where she currently serves as Dean of Clinical Affairs.

It may be cliché, but these three women are among the leaders and best in the legal arena. McCormack, Johnson, and Kelley will make exceptional Supreme Court Justices, who will be committed to integrity, fairness, and not allowing special interests to have special influence in their rulings. Unfortunately, this commitment to fairness is often lacking on the current court. As an example, insurance companies have won 28 out of 28 cases during Justice Markman’s and Justice Zahra’s tenures on the court; Michigan patients, families, and children: zero.

Yes, this election presents a huge opportunity for the Dems to take back the Michigan Supreme Court; but more importantly, it is an opportunity for confidence to be restored in the judicial branch. Public confidence in the Supreme Court has been depleted, but these three extraordinary candidates can restore integrity to judicial branch of government.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
