"They're superb," the president said in regards to each of the four of the conceivable last decisions. "Each one. You can't turn out badly."

The finalists: Brett Kavanaugh

Kavanaugh, 53, is a government re-appraising court judge situated in Washington, D.C., who already clerked for Kennedy. He earned the two his single guy's and his law degree from Yale and began his profession clerking on the interests court of the Third and Ninth Circuits previously inevitably working his way to the Supreme Court clerkship.
