Obama's first Supremes nominee

Troy Jones over at the war college has an excellent post about President Obama's first nominee to the Supreme Court. Read it here.

Simply put, Obama won the right to fill Supreme Court vacancies. He could have done much worse than this one and he really appears to have stripped the radical right fringe of the Republican Party of their ability to complain convincingly, not that it will do much good when they complain unconvincingly. And, they will.
