Themost recent nominees from President-elect Donald Trump are accordingto him “a representative of the kind of constitutional principles(Liptak)” he values. Following from the twenty-one candidatesbrought forward, it is utterly difficult to conclusively choose thenext Supreme Court judge since their diversity and stands onconstitutional interpretations vary and differ from what many peoplewould describe as values held by the President-elect. However,following the previous nominations made by the leader of the USA,there surrounds much speculation on the appointment of Florida ChiefJustice Charles Canady as the first Supreme Court pick.
ChiefJustice Charles Canady is sixty-two years old and served in afour-term Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives inthe 1990s (Liptak). Additionally, he was part of the leadingprosecuting team that unsuccessfully pushed for President BillClinton’s impeachment in the Senate trial of 1999. He has worked inall of the three arms of the government, and over the years hisreputation has placed him as an obvious choice for the Republicanadministration. His inclination to the law is that of being stricterin the interpretation of the Constitution than other Chief Justicesacross the states. Additionally, his tenure in the legal system makeshim a huge skeptic of the non-enumerated rights of the people such asprivacy. More so, his law knowledge places him as one who would playwith the conservative idea of the social movements. The Chief Justicewould also be a first pick from the common and all-around tendency ofputting the law and the provisions of the Constitution ahead of hispolitical preferences. As such, his decisions in the courtroom wouldnot be under any influence from a President highly likely toinfluence or meddle with the generations of the court.
