Supreme Court

I now believe Janice Brown to be an ideal nominee for the Supreme Court. She is very well respected. She has also come up through the California system indicating the depth of respect for her wisdom. Finally, across a broad range of issues-- fiscally, socially, and constitutionally-- she is a conservatives conservative. And yet, as outlined above, she came up through California which surely indicates that her rulings just make sense to a very wide cross-cutting cast of all Americans.

She has two knocks. One is she might be a few years older than an ideal (very long lasting) appointment. Second, and basically contrarily, she will be branded as inexperienced (she was just confirmed to the DC Circuit on June 8, 2005). But she has survived this characterization before.
