    Meet Brian Sandoval, Nevada’s Party Pooper
    He may be the most popular Republican in the country. So why does it feel like every GOP candidate is running in the other direction?

    Sandoval’s problems aren’t exactly unique: John Kasich, a friend of the governor’s, likes to tout his centrist agenda in Ohio. But even compared to Kasich, Sandoval’s record wouldn't be easy to embrace if you're running for president.

Yet education is simply the most recent of a long list of Sandoval’s conservative heresies: The abortion rights governor has embraced Obamacare; lauded immigration reform and DREAMers; fiercely championed renewable energy; and taken lesser known actions on police body cameras, driver’s licenses for undocumented aliens and multiple moves to squelch Republican-led tort reform.

    Not really impressed with this rumor. If it's true, then the President is picking a Supreme Court Justice based on partisan lines, rather than experience or even legal ideology.

    This is exactly what he's doing. He doesn't want to wait until a possible trump presidency where Donald puts in, god knows who. Probably Judge Judy or something.

    Yeah, frankly I think anyone Donald would appoint would be better than anyone Barry could appoint.

    I want the Senate to hold this guy up.

    Then I want Hillary to pick Kamala Harris, the Attorney General for California that is running for Senate. :smile:

    Wouldn't Obama picking Harris be better for dems? They can then play the race card and the war on women card for the next 8-9 months.

    That would be poetic justice. Imagine Obama getting nominated by Hillary after Republicans stonewalled Obama.

    Nothing would make them crazier than that man with a lifetime appointment, one that they made possible by sitting on their hands for a year.
