Who Will Biden Nominate?

            Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer announced today that he plans to retire from the bench after the court recesses after the end of June. He is the oldest justice on the highest court in the land. He is also liberal. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg did not retire during the Obama administration and died after Donald Trump became President, allowing him to appoint a conservative justice to replace her.

Democrats do not want to take the chance that the same thing will happen again. Thus, Breyer has announced his retirement to allow Biden to nominate a replacement before Republicans take over the Senate after the 2022 mid-term election.

Biden has repeatedly said that he would nominate a black woman to the Supreme Court. Breyer’s announcement ramped up the talk that Biden will nominate Kamala Harris to replace him. This would put a liberate black woman on the bench. It would also solve the Democrat problem of what to do with Harris.

Whoever Biden nominates for Breyer’s replacement can be approved by a majority of votes in the Senate. It is possible for the nominee to be approved without a single Republican voting for them. Such a vote does not need sixty votes, just a majority. If Kamala Harris becomes the next Supreme Court justice, Americans will suffer for many years to come for the decision to elect Biden as President of the United States.
