It's almost as if he believes that he can win.

Re: BREAKING NEWS Donald Trump has released a list of potential Supreme Court nominee

Since I am looking for Justices who are not tilted to the right...

...I hope Trump will not be elected so these people will not be nominated.

He is just trying to deflect from not releasing his tax returns for the last 10 years.

Like the diversity. We need more on the Supreme Court.

I am sort of surprised Judge Judy isn't on the list.

Just as Hillary is trying to deflect by calling for them to be released.

Surprised Simon Cowell isnt on the list,
American Idol is what Trump want to be (thinks he is?) and Simon is already a judge...

Calling for a Presidential candidate to do what he promised to do and for doing something that every Presidential candidate since 1972 has done.

Re: BREAKING NEWS Donald Trump has released a list of potential Supreme Court nominee

Trump recently said he'd like to appoint a black woman to replace Dianna Ross as she has been a Supreme for 40 years and should retire soon. :shock:

Re: BREAKING NEWS Donald Trump has released a list of potential Supreme Court nominee

All of these are solid names - and perhaps the best indication thus far that Trump realizes that his rhetoric that he doesn't need conservatives to win may not match reality.

Re: BREAKING NEWS Donald Trump has released a list of potential Supreme Court nominee

I don't know any of the justices listed, but I would just comment that it seems that the vast majority of those named are from States that Trump wants or hopes to be converted to Republican in the general election.

I don't know to what extent a possible Supreme Court nominee from your home State will have on swing or independent voters, but the old bait and switch isn't a bad sales pitch all things considered.

Her own financial disclosure. Trump's financial disclosure didn't contain the ammo she needed to distract from her own.

Naïve in the extreme. Calling for an opponent to release "X" (no matter how meaningful or meaningless X is) is a standard political opposition tactic.

Setting aside the fact that financial disclosures and tax returns are not the same...are you trying to imply that she is deflecting from not releasing her financial disclosures (even though she did) or are you trying to imply that she wants to deflect from what is in them?

He enlisted the Heritage Foundation to help compile the list. That's a good sign.

1) Every Presidential candidates since 1972 has released their tax returns before the election.

2) He has promised to release them and has come up with multiple different excuses for why he can't release them today.

Kind of like Hillary and transcripts of her Wall street speeches.

And on 8 November he will have his Waterloo.

I'm gonna love the first time an interviewer asks about any of them.

Do blank expressions count as responses?

I'm aware she filed her required financial disclosures. Her disclosure contains a number of gotchas that Trump can use against her. Her campaign had hoped his would afford her with similar ammo. No such luck Cankles.

So she distracts by using this time honored tactic.
