Brett Michael Kavanaugh is a judge on the US Court of Appeals. He was Staff Secretary in the Executive Office of the President of the United States under President George W. Bush.
A protégé of Kenneth Starr, Kavanaugh played a lead role in drafting the Starr report, which urged the impeachment of President Bill Clinton.[1] Kavanaugh led the investigation into the suicide of Clinton aide Vincent Foster. After the 2000 U.S. Presidential election, in which Kavanaugh worked for the George W. Bush campaign in the Florida recount, Kavanaugh joined Bush's staff, where he led the Administration's effort to identify and confirm judicial nominees.[2]
Kavanaugh was nominated to the D.C. Appeals Court by Bush in 2003. His confirmation hearings were contentious and stalled for three years over charges of partisanship. Kavanaugh was ultimately confirmed in May 2006 after a series of negotiations between Democratic and Republican senators.[3][4][5]
On June 27, 2018, Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement, effective July 31, 2018. Kavanaugh is seen as a front-runner for appointment to fill that vacancy.[6]

This is who I am hoping for. It will be a tough confirmation fight, but who cares? Anyone he picks would most likely get the same treatment. Plus, that Kavanaugh has been a favorite and been pushed by some of the never Trumpers on the right, so I am skeptical of him.

Gotta go with the tougher one first. If we try her on the next go around, it will end up like a Scalia followed by Bork situation and she will get Borked

Any Trump selection will be good.

We've seen enough crap from the maniac Left Wing Justices.

Time to end their reigns on laws and minimize their wild "opinions" on cases they "judge".

Judge Thomas Hardiman is a big second amendment advocate. I like that....a lot.

shouldn't they all advocate for the 2nd amendment considering their job is to protect and enforce the constitution?

They have all served on the bench which means they have been thru the confirmation process before. So Democrats and Republicans have all voted for that long list you provided, so in essence you are saying that Democrats voted for racist immigrant hating individuals before but none will this time, because why ? Did they change or is more sour grapes ?

I think its either Kavanaugh or Hardiman, with an edge toward Kavanaugh.

Barrett is the youngest (46)...Kethledge (51), Kavanaugh & Hardiman (53).
Barrett would have the most potential years on the bench...plus women live longer.
