TalkLeft Recommends Ed Prado for Supeme Court
We need a moderate to replace Justice O'Connor. She has been the critical moderate voice in deciding close cases. Like O’Connor, Judge Prado is a moderate. He is fair-minded and independent.
Justice O’Connor was an histroric nominee – the first woman on the Supreme Court. Judge Prado would also be an historic nominee – the first Hispanic Supreme Court Justice.
If Bush chooses a radical right or extremist candidate, he will be in for a huge fight. He can avoid this. The best consensus choice would be 5th Circuit Appeals Court Justice Ed Prado. President Bush nominated him for the 5th Circuit and he was overwhelmingly approved (97 to 0.) He's been on the federal bench since Reagan appointed him to the Distict Court in 1984.
