Why can't we turn back the clock? The sense of disappointment over this nomination has absolutely sapped me. Legal enthusiasts (like me) look forward to these opportunities that come along only every several years.
Yet, the president shows absolutely no daring, no creativity, no imagination. He selected his Supreme Court nominee the same way he picked his Vice-President, which is to say, he picked the person he charged with helping him find candidates!
Michael McConnell needs to make sure he gets a spot on the selection committee next time around. Then, he'll have a shot.
