A suitable compromise #SCOTUS nominee

These are the characteristics that a President Obama-nominated candidate to fill the late Associate Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat that the Republican Senate will find inspiring and hard-to-pass on:

  1. White
  2. Male
  3. Ivy League-educated (preferably if he overcame the barriers of potentially losing his space to an affirmative action candidate because he was a legacy admission)
  4. A long legal career in the law firm of his CEO father’s best buddy from the country club
  5. During that legal career, standing up against tyranny such as the estate tax, environmental regulations, or any program that improves the lives of poor people.
