Actually, I do. I think it is ridiculous that we have neither a term limit nor an age limit. There is no reason in the world that the Supreme Court should consistently have a majority of septagenerians, as we do now. And I have no idea by what precise criteria one would prefer China's leadership to that of the US.

I am incredulous that Larry Tribe's name has not been mentioned as a possible nominee at least to my knowledge. I know several reasons for not selecting him, perhaps dispositive reasons, but doesn't anyone else find it odd that someone who was once considered an extremely desirable liberal choice for the Court gets no mention at all. I think I know why he would definitely not be selected. His age, potential for inviting a nasty Senate fight, baggage, and so forth would militate against his nomination, but not a mention?
