Then again, a reduction of lawyers in America wouldn't be a bad thing...
There are way too many attorneys and much of our problems come from lawyers creating work for themselves. 95% of the lawsuits I have dealt with as a civil defense attorney are complete crap churned by attorneys trying to create business.
We need to make law school harder to get into than Medical school. More doctors are good, more lawyers are bad. There are WAY TOO MANY lawschools with too many lawyers chasing too few dollars, ethics has slipped
as to Woods, she's pretty far out there and I suspect would be fillibustered. After what happened to Estrada and Keisler-both of whom were much more qualified to be on the appellate court than woods was when she was selected, its time for a little payback
Kagan and Garland are both Jewish and there is talk that another Jewish Justice is too much (2% of the population-33% of the court) but then again, with Stevens retiring, Protestands have ZERO Justices and Wood is Protestant
she also has been divorced twice and didn't go to an Ivy league law school though Texas is one of the finest schools in the nation and certainly the equal of NW where Stevens went.
Kagan is a bit more Mainstream and Garland doesn't have much of a record to attack given the court he sits on normally deals with regulatory issues rather than more controversial issues which could provide ammunition
our appellate guru in my office (he predicted Roberts long before the Public had ever heard the name) said at one time brilliant Lesbian professor Pam Karlan was a leading contender but with contentious mid terms coming, she has faded due to being "too radical".
I am hoping if Obama wants a "quota" he pick Akhil Reed Amar because the guy is as brilliant as they come, is a sterling professor of law at Yale (which is a strong argument that he is the leading constitutional law scholar in the nation today) and incredibly honest intellectually. Plus he is a genuinely warm and decent person.
Wholey unqualified by lightyears.
