My Candidate for the Supremes

Alex Kozinski
Originally uploaded by octopod.
Alex Kozinski, a justice on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, would make a good Supreme Court appointee. The guy's brilliant and can be funny, but is deadly serious as a justice. He would bring an intensity and wit to questioning of lawyers before the Court that would be quite refreshing.

Kozinski has a somewhat libertarian philosphy, writes clearly (sometimes breezily), and could win confirmation. I have no idea what he thinks about Roe v. Wade.

Liabilities: slight accent (born in Romania, I think), and would be the third Supreme Court Justice of Jewish origin if appointed to replace Rehnquist.

My two cents, anyway.
