Garland: Obama’s nomination ‘greatest honor of my life’

I came across the next very interesting vid clip. I can tell you all admire Ruth Bader Ginsburg just like I do. Sweet beans!

Merrick Garland almost made it to the Supreme Court six years ago, but he was saved for a time when President Obama might need someone palatable to Republicans to replace a conservative justice.

A time like now.

Garland, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit — the most frequent stepping-stone to the Supreme Court — comes straight out of central casting.

Like five current justices as well as the late Antonin Scalia, who he would replace, Garland attended Harvard Law School. Like Samuel Alito and Sonia Sotomayor, he’s a former prosecutor. Like Scalia, Chief Justice John Roberts, Clarence Thomas and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, he comes from the powerful D.C. Circuit court.

Garland isn’t even the first Supreme Court nominee to earn undergraduate and law degrees from Harvard, clerk for Judge Henry Friendly of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit, work at the Justice Department, become a partner at a major Washington, D.C., law firm, and serve on the D.C. Circuit . Roberts did all that.
