    So far your complain is that she didn't graduate magna cum laude and that she wasn't a top prosecutor (even though she was the top prosecutor in Brooklyn).

    Do you have anything other than you tirade against those over-privileged black people?
    the real issue is

    IS LORETTA LYNCH THE BEST AVAILABLE PERSON FOR THE JOB

    no

    Is she even close

    no

    Is she qualified compared to say Holder-Yes

    is she qualified compared to someone Like say peter Keisler or Paul Clement? absolutely not

    There ya go. Change the question.

    - She was only picked cause she's black.
    - Do you have any proof of this?
    - Well she's very unqualified!
    - Can you tell me hows she's unqualified? Where has she performed poorly during her career?
    - Well she's not the most qualified!

    Disgusting. Disgusting and vile. Just save us the time and be honest about your issues with her TD. Be honest and just come out with it.

    So you will instead divine the real truth from some arcane skill like mind reading to arrive at this conclusion?

    Lets see if you can answer some preliminary questions


    If someone graduates with at most a 3.5 average from harvard and hundreds and hundreds of whites with 3.7 or better are turned down by HLS

    Is it reasonable to believe the successful candidate in question got affirmative action

    IF Harvard law at the time added .5 points to the GPA of black candidates and 130 points to the LSAT score is it fair to believe that accepted black candidates had lower scores than many many whites who didn't get in?

    Are we talking about her admission to law school in 1981, or her appointment to AG in 2015?

    [goes and checks title of thread....... yep, "Senate confirms lynch as attorney general."]

    Right, it's her appointment to AG after a 30 year career!! What the hell does her GPA and LSAT scores in 1981 have to do with anything at this point?

    Goodness, your obsession over her Harvard days is bizarre. When was the last time you gave a damn about the academic record and test scores of a white guy with a 30 year career? If it's not "never," you've got a very bizarre way of evaluating qualifications.

    I guess you don't even bother reading posts

    1) lynch got into Harvard Law due to her race

    2) her Harvard law diploma was a major factor in her getting several jobs

    if she had gone to a law school based on her qualifications, her ability to end up as AG would have been lessened. DUH

    If forced to state an opinion on affirmative action/admissions preferences - frankly I'm not upset either way - I'd oppose them based on race, but support them based on economic condition. There are parents in NYC fighting to get their kids into $20,000 a year pre-school because they think it will help them get into an elite college. Those kids' entire lives are devoted to that goal, with access to the best schools, tutors, test prep services, etc. and they have an enormous advantage over some girl in Idaho attending the public school. The problem I have with race based preferences is some black kid in Harlem's biggest obstacle to getting into Harvard isn't race in 2015 but poverty and crap schools, same as his white counterparts in the same school. I can't justify giving a black kid a preference not available to his white or hispanic or asian counterparts.

    If white people got into college thru govt-mandated quotas (affirmative action) we would care.
