He will be an outstanding justice. His intellect is unquestioned. He's conservative. And as a friend who worked with him at the Department of Justice recalled, he is a kind and decent man.
Another friend who works for Concerned Women of America told me that CWA knocked on literally millions of doors to get Trump elected -- all because of the Supreme Court vacancy.
When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made a referendum of the open seat, he changed the course of the election and of history. To all those Dems who are still whining about Merrick Garland, if the Dems had won, Hillary Clinton could have renominated him. Nothing was stolen here. McConnell made the open seat the central question of the election, and the Dems lost.
Live long and prosper, Justice Gorsuch.
