As CBN News has reported, Trump has narrowed his list of possible nominees. Trump's pick would be a nod to Kennedy's legacy. "He was a federal prosecutor, general counsel to the governor of Utah, and has served his home state for the better part of a decade in the U.S. Senate".
Kavanaugh is a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
Kethledge was nominated to his current post by then-president George W. Bush.
The president met with seven potential candidates this week, including two women. Trump headed out of town to Montana Thursday.
Asked to name the four candidates on his shortlist, Trump refused but reaffirmed that "I have it down to four". Trump's appointee would maintain the slim 5-4 conservative majority on the court. While Kavanaugh is certainly conservative, he's not a "bomb thrower", in Malcolm's words.
Stacey Dash plays Mildred Jefferson, a controversial pro-lifer who made waves as the first Black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and the former president of National Right to Life, the oldest national pro-life organization in America. The appointment of either judge would broaden that gap to 10 years. A vote against one of Trump's Supreme Court nominees could add a lot more fuel to the fire. Trump compares the significance of the opportunity to "war and peace". That's why some people argue for calm and caution in the upcoming process to appoint a Supreme Court justice to replace Anthony Kennedy. "As you know, there are many presidents who never get a choice".
Dorothy Roberts, a University of Pennsylvania professor of law and sociology, said Wednesday that a conservative Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade and ultimately criminalize miscarriages. The president described the potential picks as "outstanding". Trump finally nominated judge Neil Gorsuch.
Lee would interpret the Constitution and laws according to their original meaning and text. The office has a pine desk, a wood stove, and no internet.

Only 45 named tropical storms have formed in the first half of July from 1851-2017, for an average rate of one every 3.7 years. It appears that Fabio has reached its peak intensity with wind speeds of 110 miles per hour and its minimum pressure at 964 mb.
He also co-authored a book on leadership and solitude, Lead Yourself First.
And Kavanaugh also worked on "The Starr Report", which outlined the grounds for President Bill Clinton's impeachment. He was appointed in 2006 by George W. Bush. The nomination was stalled for three years.
Barrett was born in New Orleans, Louisiana.
A Justice Lee wouldn't let activist lower courts distort the meaning of our laws and Constitution in order to impose their left-wing preferences on the nation.
On Wednesday, Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from ME, reiterated that she could not vote for a nominee with a "demonstrated hostility" to Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a woman's right to an abortion.
Barrett, 46, clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia. For Democrats to take back the Senate in November, McCaskill's party would need to hold all of their 26 seats up for election and win two of the nine Republican seats in play.
Recently, liberals are trying to smear her for her faith. The U.S. Senate confirmed her appointment in October and she received commission on November 2, 2017. But Collins said she also wouldn't blindly vote to confirm someone she thinks is unworthy in other respects - even if he or she supports Roe v. Wade.
Like to Kethledge and Kavanaugh, Barret is a textualist.
Debates over Kavanaugh's work with Bush and rulings he has made on health care and abortion continued to churn Thursday as critics urged the president to shy away from a judge with an establishment Republican pedigree.
