The Promise of President Trump: Ben Sasse - WSJ

The Promise of President Trump: Ben Sasse - WSJ:

Washington wrongly thinks of the justices as wearing red and blue jerseys. I believe that Mr. Trump will nominate a qualified, conservative jurist for the court. I also expect liberals and many in the press to reflexively label his nominee a partisan. That’s dangerous.
The Constitution doesn’t talk about Republican or Democratic judges. It establishes an independent judiciary precisely to safeguard our rights by limiting and dividing federal powers. The Supreme Court’s job isn’t to drive political agendas but to defend America’s great experiment in self-government.
