I think Sandra Day O'Connor hughee99 Sep 2015 #6
She was one of five that appointed George W. Cyrano Sep 2015 #13
As I said, the case could be made for her, and it would be a divisive pick. n/t hughee99 Sep 2015 #15
Since she isn't dead, its also an illegal pick. Travis_0004 Sep 2015 #33
Not to sound morbid, but by the time they get the ball rolling on this, it wouldn't be an issue. hughee99 Sep 2015 #38
While on the face of it, O'Connor, as the first woman to sit on the SCOTUS certainly deserves.... Raster Sep 2015 #53
