Plz. Stop. My heart can't handle losing Kennedy.
Kennedy is a good Justice, it really would be a shame if he retired. Trump did well with Gorsuch (I'm a fan of Textualism) but I'm wary that he can come up with another solid appointment. I'd prefer to get rid of Darth Vader before Kennedy and replace her with Ted Cruz just for all the drama it would cause. Part of me thinks the Senate would unanimously confirm him just so they can move him across the street.
HAHAHAHAHAHA The Ted Cruz theory is so solid. And he had solid picks outside of Gorsuch before. TBH nobody Trump could pick will ever be as bad as Clarence Thomas...
I just hope Breyer stays for the rest of eternity. I love him.
My fear this time is that Trump won't be confined to the "list" he promised to voters this time around. I'm decently right wind and was a big Scalia fan, and I 100% agree that Thomas is just awful. He never has any real reason for his rulings.
There's an article in the Northwestern Law Review I've been meaning to get to about Thomas and why he basically never talks or asks questions. http://www.northwesternlawreview.org/clarence-thomas-the-questioner
