President Trump has named Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his choice to replace late Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court — a long-sought victory for conservatives and the anti-abortion movement. “I stand before you today to fulfill one of my highest and most important duties under the United States Constitution,” Trump said. A very good choice.
For years, the conservative movement has been searching for someone who could lead American jurisprudence to the right with the kind of intellectual rigor that conservatives say made Justice Antonin Scalia so effective for decades. Barret clerked for Scalia and has a good record in the Seventh Court of Appeals.
