A note for Tuesday: 3 reasons I will vote democrat in 2016

 - by New Deal democrat

(Slow day, have items in draft but not completed, so ...)

  1. Antonin Scalia (78 years old)
  2. Anthony Kennedy (77 years old)
  3. Ruth Bader Ginsburg (81 years old)
None of the above three are likely to alive or healthy enough to serve on the Supreme Court by 2020.  I have previously pointed out that it typically takes 3 consecutive Presidential terms of same party control to reshape the Court.

Who do you want to name their replacements?

There is no single item, no matter how important, on any economic or social agenda, that will have nearly the impact as the answer to that one question.
