    Why Obama is picking this new person to be on the supreme court is beyond me. Doesn't anyone see the conflict of interest of having a member of the prosecuting team be on the supreme court. Every case that is going to be argued will have a supreme court justice that has sympathies for the prosecuting team. This would not be a fair and balanced jury in any case.

    Well, you would think that if anyone was welled versed in Constitutional Law and familiar with the Supreme Court it would be the Solicitor General...

    Can't you see it? One minute she'll be arguing the case and the next to ask herself a question she'll be running to take her place behind the bench while tossing on her robe. Come on, get with the program.

    What on earth does a fair and partial jury have to do with the Supreme Court?

    And it's obvious why he picked her. She is like him.

    Many who have served on the Supreme Court have spent time as an Attorney General on the state or federal level. I would assume she would step aside on any case she had been involved with in the past. You can't expect that a Justice practices law in a vacuum.
