He clerked for a federal appellate judge and two Supreme Court justices and spent a decade practicing law before his appointment in 2006, at age 39, to the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Is this the type of person one would want to be on the U.S. Supreme Court? Once nominated by the President, the nominee looks to the U.S. Senate, for confirmation, as is,…
