87-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsberg has been long thought to be the next Supreme Court Justice to retire.
One of the biggest guessing games in Washington, D.C. is trying to figure out her replacement.
And Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s successor just got revealed in this shocking way.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is the overwhelming favorite to win the Democrat Party nomination.
At this point in the campaign, Biden’s job is to piece together a Democrat Party that is fractured upon ideological and demographic lines.
Younger Democrats believe Biden is just another corporate-backed establishment politician who can’t defeat Donald Trump.
During the latest Democrat debate, Biden sought to win over these “woke” voters by appealing to their attachment to identity politics.
Biden pledged that his first Supreme Court Justice nomination would be a black woman.
“Number one, I committed that if I’m elected president, to have an opportunity to appoint someone to the courts who will be — I will appoint the first black woman to the courts,” Biden began.
“It’s required that they have representation now. It’s long overdue,” Biden added.
Many court watchers believe Ruth Bader Ginsberg is only hanging on to see if a Democrat wins the 2020 election.
If Biden wins, many Washington, D.C. insiders believe Ginsberg will quickly step aside and allow Biden to nominate her successor.
During the debate Biden made it clear that qualifications or even ideology were not his most important criteria for picking Ginsberg’s successor.
Of course Biden will pick the most radical justice he can find given the demographic constraints he put on his selection process.
Voters will have to factor this in when they head to the voting booth this fall.
