Default Re: Good King Trump

The New York Times sez that the leading candidates for the empty SCOTUS seat are William Pryor, Neil Gorsuch and Thomas Hardiman, all U.S. Court of Appeals judges. I don't know a goddamn thing about Hardiman. Pryor would be a nightmare, voting even more Scalia-like than Scalia (Pryor would be more reliably wingnutty on constitutional criminal procedure matters). Gorsuch is not nearly as crazy, and would likely be fairly easy to get confirmed.

ETA:

SCOTUSblog has profiles on all three judges named in the Times article:

Pryor

Gorsuch

Hardiman
