Re: Posner as nominee

A rather enlightening study can be found in a recent Legal Affairs article, called "Supreme Stats" (Scroll halfway down the page from this link). This is a publication of Yale Law School. And it has some funny-looking cartoons.
Beyond that, however, the analysis is enlightening. The article cites Posner as perhaps the most frequently cited, and most productive, of all the Circuit Court judges. This might indicate he would in fact be the type of prominent nominee the Court should hope for. However, there are other practical reasons why Posner would not be such a good nominee.....
