Jesse Merriam (link below) says Kavanaugh is the best pick for the Right because he thinks in terms of effects on regulal Americans. Merriam says:
“As I wrote for Real Clear Politics last week, Kavanaugh was the right pick, because the other candidates, though strong conservatives, “have thin or questionable records on the defining issue of the 2016 election—whether American sovereignty, and the forgotten American worker, will once again play a critical role in our polity.”
Brett Kavanaugh was the only one of Trump’s candidates who has repeatedly interpreted American statutory and constitutional law against the background of our national sovereignty. In case after case, Judge Kavanaugh has sought to understand our immigration law, trade regulations, and constitutional guarantees in light of how they affect average Americans.”
I don’t know much about the surety of judicial rating systems so I hope he’s right. We have been disappointed before. But I’ll say for now I think we’ve gotten an upgrade from Kennedy.
