Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Paul Watford, DC Circuit Judge Sri Srinivasan, and Merrick Garland, the chief judge of the DC Circuit. Even if Obama manages to persuade the Senate to hold a hearing on his nominee, the GOP-controlled chamber isn't likely to confirm anyone. The process will be brutal, without even offering the promise of attaining a seat on the high court. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said last week, Obama's nominee, whoever he or she is, will " bear some resemblance to a piñata. " In short, this year's brawl over the Supreme Court centers around just about everything except how best to fill an empty seat on the court. Republicans have a 10-vote edge in the Senate, and they have routinely demonstrated their ability to unite to obstruct Obama. Senate Republicans have barely confirmed Obama's lower-court appointees, at the risk of creating a judicial emergency due to unfilled seats. In 2013, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley went so far as to try to eliminate three seats on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals simply to deny Obama the opportunity to fill them. Obama last nominated a Supreme Court justice in 2010, when he tapped former Solicitor General Elena Kagan to replace retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. She'd never been a judge, but she had argued cases before the Supreme Court, and she had a strong legal academic background. ) Even so, Kagan was confirmed 63-to-37, with only five Republican votes. By comparison, in 2005, the Senate confirmed Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. by a vote of 78-to-22. Democrats were in the minority then, yet 22 of them voted for Roberts. Of those five moderate GOP senators who voted for Kagan, only two remain in the Senate today: Sens. And unlike in 2010, Republicans now tightly control the Senate with a solid majority. A few Republican senators might feel compelled to allow Obama a hearing on his nominee. But there is no indication that any Republican senator will vote to confirm that person. Forcing Republicans to vote against an attractive Supreme Court nominee could make Republicans look like unreasonable obstructionists in an election year. The issue of the Supreme Court can be a potent one in the presidential election and in certain Senate races. The Democrats need to win at least five seats to take back the Senate, and Democratic strategists believe that GOP intransigence can be used to target. Source: www.motherjones.com

Garland—if he's willing to be a martyr—would make a good ... though she had the same academic credentials as Justice Samuel Alito. Commentator Pat Buchannan claimed Sotomayor's career indicated a "lifelong resolve to discriminate against white males."
