Who do you see potentially being appointed to the Supreme Court in the future?

Wikipedia maintains a list of Trump candidates. Not sure who would be the finalists for the next appointment. The finalists for the last appointment (Raymond Kethledge, Thomas Hardiman, and Amy Coney Barrett) could all be in the mix, but I could also see Trump turning to someone whom he'd previously appointed to an appellate court.

For Democrats, it obviously depends on who is president (and who controls the Senate), but Sri Srinivasan, Paul Watford, Jacqueline Nguyen, and Goodwin Liu all seem like likely contenders.

If Biden wins, I think a GOP Senate would settle for someone like Garland replacing RBG, as she would retire, that alone would move the court right


If Trump wins again, I doubt he gets any vacancies, Dems probably get the Senate in 2022, then RBG can safely retire and Trump would probably nominate someone with a judicial philosphy similar to Anthony Kennedy, and Schumer would block him/her

I think Garland or a Republican moderate will replace RBG, when she retires, Trump is not getting Amg Coney Barrett confirmed to replace RBG, Collins, Murkowski, and Portman, would almost certainly sink that nomination

If Trump is president with a Dem Senate in 2022, amd RBG retires, he could probably get Garland confirmed, of he nominates  him

Amy Coney Barrett should be the only candidate considered after the disaster that is/was Kavanaugh.

Amy Coney Barrett is the best option. However, the time to nominate her is now(assuming RBG steps down before the 2020 elections). The Republicans will lose senate seats in 2020 and will probably lose majority in 2022.

Assuming Trump loses in 2020 and nobody else leaves:

Goodwin Liu to replace Breyer
Leondra Kruger to replace RBG

I think Trump will only nominate from his predefined list.

Only after he leaves office will someone not on that list be nominated.

[On a side note, I think the next President should nominate Garland (if he's still available to be nominated) just as a means of restoring some trust to the nomination process, even if he ends up being voted down, in which case people can say that he was at least given the fair hearing he deserved.]

Nah, he'll be 68 in the next presidential term. I love me some Merrick Garland but that's a waste of a Supreme Court nomination.
