Thanks, Laura Beth, for the invitation to join this blog. (As those of you who know her recognize, it is very difficult to say no to Laura Beth Nielsen.)
Sitting here six days from Super Tuesday, and with the Republican and Democratic fields each losing a candidate today, I’m struck by how little we have heard about the U.S. Supreme Court in the campaign so far. It hardly takes an actuary to recognize that the next president is likely to have two, if not more, seats to fill on the Court, and the open seats are likely to come from the left side of the bench.
Why hasn’t this issue gotten much attention so far? It would seem to be the kind of “red meat” topic that would lure the faithful to come vote.
