Awesome! Can't wait to hear some more lower court nominees. Also, there is another Kentucky seat on the 6th that is still open. Somewhere, I think I heard that Bunning is the frontrunner for the other seat?

I've been trying to tell you guys. Clinton's win is going to be massive. Imagine Obama's numbers with minorities, four more years of minority population growth, and Clinton out-performing him by >5% with white voters. No state will be safe.

His 50 year old son is a judge who serves with Thapar on the Eastern Kentucky District.

He said that he wanted to avoid creating any dangerous precedents. He'd be a good addition to the court simply to move the Judiciary away from overreaching activism and legislating from the bench. Sounds like a smart person, and he didn't actually express his personal opinion.

As Buckley would say, I won't insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.

They are setting him up to slide into the next Supreme Court slot, perhaps this summer.

There should be a big avalanche of judicial noms around May.
