Kavanaugh is young - 53

Great legal background, Yale undergrad and Yale law.

Currently serving on the D.C. circuit, considered by many to be the second most influential court in the land. As a side note, the Chief judge there is Merrick Garland.

Was Kennedy’s law clerk.

He’s conservative, so he does have a bias, but that’s known to change once the weight of the position is felt.

He is an originalist, so he’s not prone to judicial activism.

He is a 1A and 2A proponent, as should any judge be.

He claims that Roe v. Wade is settled law (I disagree with him here).

At the end of the day, he probably isn’t going to occupy Kennedy’s seat in the way Kennedy did. He probably won’t be the deciding vote like Kennedy was. That mantle will likely shift to Roberts.

All in all a very adult choice by Trump.

He will be confirmed.
