Who is Supreme Court contender Amy Coney Barrett?

Either that line above or other famous quotes from the main characters cult TV shows always have something to remember with. Now as to what in it is memorable depends on your hobbies and interests but for car nuts it's definitely the cars. In fac

Top contenders have included federal appeals judges Brett Kavanaugh, Raymond Kethledge, Amy Coney Barrett and Thomas Hardiman.

As President Trump prepared to reveal his next Supreme Court nominee Monday night, MPR News Host Kerri Miller asked Ilya Shapiro, senior fellow in constitutional studies at the Cato Institute, and Kimberly Atkins, chief Washington reporter and columnist for the Boston Herald, to think about the effectiveness of the nomination process.

"Remember, the President ran on the Supreme Court issue and that greatly enthused voters", Leonard Leo, who is now on leave from the Federalist Society, where he helped craft Trump's list of candidates, said on ABC's "This Week" Sunday.

"He could throw a dart on that list" and conservatives would be happy.

If as expected Trump nominates someone firmly to the right, conservatives could dominate the court for years. But he did make his pick, according to a person who was not authorized to speak publicly and commented only on condition of anonymity. But there's one qualification that could prove a problem for the judge: his ties to the Bush family have reportedly raised Trump's suspicions. Senate Republicans hold only a 51-49 majority, leaving them hardly any margin if Democrats hold the line.

Issuing the invitations makes the lawmakers choose between humoring voters who think they should be bipartisan and others who feel they shouldn't condone Trump's pick.

Liberal horror and conservative delight about the implications of the pick have crystalized into a debate about the newly constituted court's potential to overturn Roe v Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that upheld a legal right to an abortion.

In the coming year the court might have to consider Trump's powers and rights in the investigation into links between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation, and whether he sought to obstruct that investigation.

In remarks on "Fox News Sunday", Graham lamented the expected resistance by Senate Democrats to a Trump nominee.

Democrats have little leverage as they try to halt the nomination - though the court's rightward lurch could stoke liberal turnout in the midterm elections in which the House of Representatives is in play.

Trump's success in confirming conservative judges, as well as a Supreme Court justice, has cheered Republicans amid concerns about his limited policy achievements and chaotic management style. Susan Collins, of ME, to speak out, told Stephanopoulos last week that a candidate who would overturn Roe v. Wade "would not be acceptable", because it indicates an "activist agenda" she didn't want to see in a judge. But there are red state Senate Democrats who are up for re-election in November like Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Joe Manchin of WV and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota.

There are no set dates for when the confirmation hearings will begin.

Kavanaugh was also a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, and he was Associate Counsel in the Office of Independent Counsel Kenneth W. Starr.

Barrett, who is 46, has less of a judicial record to review, having just been nominated to the appeals court by Trump previous year.

"I'm open to voting yes". "I don't think my role is to rubber stamp for the president, but it's also not an automatic knee-jerk no, either".

The officials underscored that McConnell did not push any choice on the president.
