We’ll know soon who President Donald Trump wants to be the next Supreme Court justice. Republicans will praise her qualifications, her intellect, her judicial temperament. Democrats will oppose. There will be an opportunity for a real debate: Should the president’s nominee be confirmed to the nation’s highest court?
The nomination will also highlight an enormous difference between Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Trump’s choice for the court will be out there for all to see, while Biden refuses to reveal even a list of people he would consider nominating, should he win the presidency.
