Obama Says “No” to Demographics

For the past several weeks critics and pundits alike have debated and argued who President Barack Obama will nominate to fill David Souter’s vacancy in the Supreme Court.  Proponents of the President have deemed it necessary to appoint either a women or a minority, believing it goes in-line with his ideology.  While this debate has been going on, conservatives have come out and said they will not listen to the President and grant him a speedy nomination.

However, the President has come out and said he will NOT make the decision based on demographics, that he wants someone with the “common touch.”  As of right now I commend the President for taking this stand, whenever individuals are selected in accordance with their gender and/or race I strongly believe our nation is in jeopardy. 

This nomination should come from a merit-based guideline.  With this being said, I do believe the President will nominate a woman, and if I had to guess I believe that woman will be Elena Kagan, who served as Associate Counsel to President Bill Clinton.
