Pryor On Supreme Court Nominees: No ‘Ideologues,’ Please

Updated: Apr 15

The AP’s Andrew Demillo reports that Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor hopes President Obama doesn’t send any of those ideologues over to the Senate for confirmation when it comes time to nominate a Supreme Court justice to replace outgoing justice David Souter:

“I do think that first and foremost what you want is a really good lawyer, someone who really respects the Constitution and respects the American legal tradition in the best sense of the word and someone who will be very fair and impartial,” Pryor, D-Ark., told reporters on a conference call. “Personally, I do not want to see an ideologue or someone who comes in with a big agenda.”

Earlier this week, Arkansas Project guest contributor Cory Cox took a look at Sen. Blanche Lincoln, up for re-election in 2010, and pondered the question of “What Will Lincoln Do?” (WWLD) on Supreme Court nominations.
