Samuel A. Alito Jr.
A boa notícia desta nomeação, é que os conservadores gostaram do nome. A segunda, é que possui um excelente currículo, e ... é juíz.
Bush, fresh from withering criticism of Miers for her lack of judicial experience and questions about her intellect, stressed Alito's many years of litigation experience, first arguing 12 cases before the Supreme Court and then his years as an appeals court judge. Bush said Alito was the most experienced nominee in 70 years. The president highlighted the fact that Alito went to the Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the prestigious law review. Bush called Alito "brilliant."
