Anyone who has cable news or social media already knows that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, yesterday, from pancreatic cancer. Personally, I'm not big on treating politicians as heroes, so I'm not going to say anything more about her, except that I wish her family and friends well as they struggle through this difficult time.
But, the aspect of her death that effects all Americans, and perhaps even people outside the country, is her replacement on the Supreme Court. Here's what PredictIt has to say on the top-10 candidates for Trump's next nominee at the moment (note that, as in any market, the prices are constantly changing).
|Amy Coney Barrett||$0.53|
|Margaret A. Ryan||$0.01|
Please discuss who you think will be the next nominee, and why?
One hundred percent of liquid rewards for this post have been designated to the experimental @penny4thoughts account. I will up-vote replies that are non-trivial and relevant in order to direct the liquid portion of this post's rewards to the authors of those comments.
I'll also enter a comment for each of the ten candidates above (which will burn author rewards), so please vote for the candidate who you think it will be.
I suppose an announcement could come at any moment, so vote for your choice fast, and feel free to also discuss your thoughts about the upcoming confirmation schedule. For example, will a nominee be confirmed before the election, or during 2020, or before the next inauguration?
