I was actually hoping for the woman from Indiana. I think Trump screwed up by not picking her. She is only 46, and a pro-life woman, which means that dems would absolutely hate her while massively energizing the GOP base. I'm not suggesting that Kavanaugh is bad, but he won't be as polarizing as the woman would have been.

You realize that the fix was in for Kavanaugh due to a backroom w/ Kennedy. Also:

In 1998, Kavanaugh wrote extensively on the matter of impeaching a president, writing that independent counsel investigations can take "too long," easily become "politicized," and investigations can go beyond their original scope. He also seemed unconvinced that a president can even be indicted while in office.

"Whether the Constitution allows indictment of a sitting President is debatable," he said.

Over a decade later, Kavanaugh reiterated this belief in the Minnesota Law Review saying, "a serious constitutional question exists regarding whether a President can be criminally indicted and tried while in office."
He also said criminal investigations affecting a sitting president are "time-consuming and distracting" and should be deferred until after the end of a president's term.

Trump's behaviour makes a whole lot more sense when you ask yourself: "what the hell would someone who is guilty as **** do in this situation?"
