    Sure of course that matters but I’m also not gullible enough to believe that while the presidency and congress are political that the court is some enlightened and above it all thing. This is about getting Democratic judges on the court and making the most out of each appointment.

    Mr. Justice Souter was appointed by a Republican president and was supposedly going to be the 5th vote against Roe V. Wade. Look how that turned out. Hopefully, Biden and his advisors will find a judge that can appeal to both sides of the aisle and stay on the court for a while.

    There’s nothing incongruent about the sentences. There is indeed no telling, hence me saying there’s a chance the younger could outlive the older, that does not mean the opposite is not also possible.

    You are just looking to disagree.

    Their Judicial matters absolutely should matter, hence me implying their ages are irrelevant.

    You should probably have a further conversation with dbroncos about this. It was his assertion that started this conversation.

    I don’t believe DBroncs ever made the assertion we shouldn’t consider their judicial records. He did make an assertion that we should factor in their age and go younger, which I literally disputed.

    I just don't think 5 years is that big of a deal.

    Vlade for SCOTUS, if Biden doesn't pick him it's because he hates the troops!

    One change I would like to see when it comes to how SCOTUS judges are nominated is instead of the president picking one person and everyone arguing about them, they should be allowed to nominate up to like 3. Have them interview and let the senate come to a conclusion.

    So the white house has officially stated that Kamala won't be the pick for the supreme court.

    I always found the rumor silly, but hopefully, this puts it to rest.

    To be clear, I was joking, I would think that would be obvious.

    Also, would you not want to be on SCOTUS?
