Default Spot on SCOTUS opening up!

When I saw the headline I was hoping to see Ginsberg or Breyer. But it's Justice Kennedy that's retiring

That's great news! Ginsberg and Breyer are likely to follow suit before long too (hopefully). Kennedy sides with the left too often.

Kennedy has been solidly conservative in some decisions including some big ones in this term. Of course he has also joined the liberals on some big cases like Oberfell (same sex marriage) Hope we can get another Gorsuch so it will be truly 5 conservative/origionalists vs 4 "living constitution" liberals. Kennedy was a wild card - never knew which way he would lean from case to case.

That is not be a bad idea - the bench may be the best place for him. He has a brilliant legal mind but his rhetorical style is abrasive, and agree or not he comes across as creepy to many rank and file voters which limits him as a politician. However put black robe and a lifetime appointment on him and he will do a lot of good defending the constitution.

Trump is also abrasive and creepy. Yet, with him, it's what gained him more support than any of his other qualities. The politics of personality is fascinating to watch.

I'd rather see Trey Gowdy on the SCOTUS than Cruz right now. Gowdy isn't running for reelection. Cruz is one of just a small handful of Senators that is actually committed to the constitution. I'd rather keep him there if we can get someone equally good on the court.

Don Willet would be another fantastic choice.

I’d like to see another black conservative like Thomas. Liberal heads are already exploding. That would just be icing on the cake (plus Thomas is a reliable conservative and I like his grumpy-old-man disdain for liberals and stupid people).

CNN is losing their mind over this! The guy retired because it was the right time for the country. I have yet to hear CNN say Ruth Bader Ginsberg was greedy and foolish for not retiring when Obama held the pick. She battled cancer twice while he was in office, but instead they’ve got her propped up there half alive, and suddenly the Dems are scared that she’ll die and Trump gets a third pick. It’s not out of the question that Breyer kicks the bucket too, and that makes 4.

They won't be able to control the hysteria if Trump gets picks 3 and 4 in during his tenure.
There might actually be mass suicides. Looking over some of the news on this most of the left is already on the verge of either jumping off a cliff or starting murderous rampages through the streets.
These folks are truly insane

These folks are truly insane
"Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their dislike of Donald Trump, to the point at which they will abandon all logic and reason.

Symptoms for this condition can be very diverse, ranging from hysterical outbursts to a complete mental break. TDS can also often result in the sufferer exhibiting violent, homicidal, or even genocidal desires."

This is the number one reason I voted for the orange hair dude. He is going to get to appoint at least three. We can afford to let the dems have the oval office, but not the supreme court.

As long as the pick is not female I'm OK with whoever. My recent experiences(as in the last couple of days) shows me that females change their minds way too often and without any good reason. That leads to a total state of confusion which is detrimental to the accomplishment of anything.
I will not offer any further explanations.

Trump is a deal maker. He wants the wall and a solution to the immigration issue. What are the odds he works with the democrats on his pick (choosing a middle of the roader) in exchange for a deal?

He could do this If he was certain he would be elected to a second term and get to appoint a couple more in the next few years.

If it did happen what issues could the democrats run on?
