Supreme Court Nominations Will Never Be the Same - Bloomberg View
As it turned out, that also meant that Tribe’s generational successor in that role, Cass Sunstein (another colleague of mine, both at Harvard Law and here at Bloomberg View) also had little chance of being nominated, despite being much more centrist than Tribe and just as qualified in his own right. Sunstein hadn’t been involved in the Bork hearings -- but the rules of the game had changed. Barack Obama couldn’t even get Sunstein, an administrative law expert, on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which specializes in administrative law.
