Rumor is this is the first of a set of dominos setting up a top judge for SCOTUS.

Agreed, and especially the fact that he's an incredibly well-credentialed, well-respected candidate.

Garland is 68, so that probably kills any chance for SCOTUS now. If they get Breyer to step down, they will want at least a 50-something.

The lefties are protesting that Garland is an old white guy so Biden is dumping on Black Lives Matter. However, he is appointing good people to serve with Garland, so we shall see.

I think this is brilliant since Biden will now get to pick a new DC Circuit judge.

Old white guys can be quite liberal. Socialistic, even. The complainers would do good to take a @#$%& seat and let it ride.

I saw a FB post by a guy I follow that made me laugh out loud. He posted the news with a comment of: "It's like you just can't tell Mitch McConnell to go f___ himself enough."

Good luck on that! We are talking about the illiberal left!
