Reports are that Obama is vetting Sandoval for the SCOTUS nomination. While I know very nothing of the man, the little the link says looks good. Is it possible Obama is really going to do something right? And if so, whatever will the Republicans do about it when one of "their own" is nominated and they're promised not to consider anyone?

His judicial resume' seems a little limited relative to some of the other Justices I checked. 10 years as District Court judge doesn't seem an especially well-rounded background for the Supreme Court.
But... that is just a first thought, he may be very qualified to others.
Obama has done many things well, you just have not been paying attention.
I hear that further obstruction from McConnell is going to hurt GOP senators and representatives from blue states particularly who are coming up for reelection in the fall. That will help us libs get that current Congress rightsized or should I say 'leftsized'. And the 'scarecrow will' deserve the recoil from his ill considered declaration and approach.
I just hope that Obama did not sell out, and fold up like a lawn chair before a bunch of rightwing bullies and their loathsome threats.
He may be the last of moderate centrist conservatives, one that supports abortion rights. The damned Republicans probably expect Obama to select another Scalia, or Robert Bork.... surely they have another thing coming.
LOL - I've been paying attention, all right, but there has been precious little that he's done well. Like ObamaCare, like the way he pushed it through congress. Like illegally inviting illegals to remain here and telling law enforcement to ignore the law of the land. Lots of things, but nothing done well.
I don't think Obama has any reason to fold, and doubt that he cares enough to do that. He's through in any case and thus has no reason to fold (unless there is more garbage pronouncements up his sleeve!). Which is why I am surprised at what is may be a good choice. Or maybe he's actually learned that he isn't King and that "centrist", whether D or R, is the way to go.

What benefit do Democrats see in obstructing Trump's Cabinet picks?Using partisan politics, the Senate Democrats are delaying President Trump's Cabinet picks from taking office. Their slow-walking techniques are an embarrassment and unlikely to succeed in doing anything, yet they...

Okay, I know this probably isn't that big of a deal to some folks, but i thought i'd bring it up anyway. On the radio the other day, I was listening to two political analysts, and one of them still insists on labeling O'Bama a moron for how he's handled things from day one of his...

In a rather desperate effort to divert the gaze of the American people away from the wreck that is his presidency, Obama, in conjunction with his press secretary, has started to call the various scandals that have bedeviled him the past 12 months or so, as PHONY.Really? I don't see...

So Michelle Bachmann is an elected Republican. She lied on Anderson Cooper's news program. And then the right wing noise machine picked up the lie and repeated it - simply because it made Obama look bad. None of the right wing media zombies thought to fact check this. They...

What do you think about Mitt Romney being the first president in U.S. History to have millions stashed in offshore Tax Havens. You know I saw this tonight and it really bothers me that we keep letting people like this run for the US President. I'll tell you right up front that I don't support the...
