David Stockman’s Contra Corner
Poor Judge Merrick Garland. He’s been on the short list for the U.S. Supreme Court for years. In fact, many believed he had a pretty good chance of replacing Justice Paul Stevens back in 2010, but the President opted for Justice Elena Kagan instead.
There is no question that Garland is immensely qualified by any definition of that word. He attended Harvard Law School, and now serves as the Chief Judge for arguably the second most influential court in the land, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
