If Roberts were a true centrist, he realizes that the Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett nominations were corrupt political appointments and that Alito and Thomas have evolved into unconstitutional Catholic Dogmatists. His resignation would be a big fuck you to the Trumpublicans who have turned him into a dancing chimp.

Alito and Thomas are not spring chickens. If Biden wins another term then I think there is a fairly good chance of getting to 4-5 or even 5-4.

Thomas will live to be 105. Just our luck.

Kavanaugh is only 57 but he's a raging alcoholic. Tick tock on the liver. We can hope.

Melissa Murray who was on Biden's shortlist last time (but now she's seen on MSNBC, does that kill her objectivity?).

In this extremely hypothetical fantasy scenario: I'd promote Ketanji Brown Jackson to Chief Justice, since she's not only the most qualified compared to the other eight justices, she's also a strong and dignified black woman which brings the added benefit of racist heads exploding all over Deplorable-land. To backfill for KBJ's seat? Another black woman. I'm sure Biden has plenty of other qualified candidates on the short list from which KBJ was nominated.

r14, even though she would have to be reconfirmed as Chief Justice, we have the votes in the Senate now.
Then Melissa Murray to fill KBJ's vacancy.

I agree with R14’s suggestion. Though I think it is highly unlikely that Roberts would step down. We have a better chance of the 74-year-old Thomas or the 72-year-old Alito croaking. Or possibly the alcoholic Kavanaugh.

Did anyone think that Justice Kennedy would be blackmailed to leave a vacancy for Kavanaugh to fill?
Anything is possible.

Yes r22, it looked very plausible when it happened. I also think this is a troll thread, but you are all so joyful that I’ll just shut up about it.

No, not a troll thread. I was just sitting around thinking what could happen to Democrats to change the balance of the appointments of Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett that happened as quickly as them. It's not a fantasy as much as an intellectual exercise.

With our luck, Kavanaugh will be one of those drunks who somehow lives to be ancient. They drink like fish yet inexplicably get to their 80s or in some cases 90s. We've all known a few.

R22 - Whatchu talkin' about Willis ? I never heard this theory before. Any links ?
Kavanuagh may be an alcoholic, but I believe he's pickled at this point - he'll live to see his bicentennial birthday.
If Roberts steps down, I'd want Judge Judy to take his place. If she refuses, put in Sunny Hostin !

How about Santos so he can at least have one legit resume builder. I don’t think there is a Constitutional requirement that a Justice be a lawyer.

Santos was already a Supreme Court Justice R32. Time for someone else to get a chance.
I like the Judge Judy suggesting immensely.

Yes, but eventually he'll make some drunk mistake, like hit-and-run, or losing a confidential briefcase in the mistresses' bedroom etc. You know some stupid stuff out of left field. I actually had not heard that he is an alcoholic. Is that true, or just an assumption based on his missteps in his grad school years?

Biden should nominate Kamala Harris. A graceful way to get her out of the executive branch. And she'd be a good supreme court justice; she knows law and litigation. She'll do fine there.

What, no available Asian nominees? After Thomas was able to withstand COVID, I've given up any hope of him dropping dead in the near future. But one can always hope.
But back to Roberts; he's proved to be another Trump in that he'll go to the grave whining about how unfairly he's been treated, how people don't respect authority, blah, blah, blah when history will remember him as actively working to dismantle democracy

She doesn’t need to be, R44. The practice of elevating only sitting federal appellate judges to the Supreme Court is a relatively recent phenomenon. Justice William O. Douglas was chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Chief Justice Warren was the Governor of California. Justice Brandeis served as President Wilson's chief economic adviser from 1912 until 1916 when he was appointed to the Court. Justice Tom Clark was President Truman’s Attorney General.

^I would love a Chief Justice Harris if no other reason that MAGA heads will be exploding right & left, but - even if we're following our fantasy about Roberts somehow growing a conscious or dying young - I wonder how popular she is in the dem establishment. It seems like there are easier ways to offload her rather than give a lifetime appointment in which they *can't* get rid of her
