Trump should have picked a true conservative for the Supreme Court

Trump should have picked a true conservative for the Supreme CourtWith the selection of Brett Kavanaugh, conservatives are celebrating President Trump’s move to push the Supreme Court to the right. The model most commonly touted is the late Antonin Scalia, who, along with Justice Clarence Thomas, held down the court’s right flank for nearly two decades before his death in 2016. A better model — a healthier example for preserving a stable constitutional democracy — would be Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who exerted far more power than Scalia over the court’s decisions during her almost 25 years (1981-2006) on the bench.
