What's Happening In Your World
Ben Jealous, the NAACP President, has expressed he would like to see President Obama appoint an African American woman to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has ultimate authority over all federal courts and state courts, involving critical matters of federal law. Once appointed, justices have life-long tenure unless they choose to resign, retire, or are removed after impeachment. Jealous stated that the president still has more appointments and expects, or is hopeful he will see a black woman on the high court. He even went as far as to offer a suggestion. Jealous mentioned the 32 nd California Attorney General, Kamala Harris, as a possible choice. Harris is the first female, African American and Indian American attorney general in the United States. Politico named Harris one the “13 people to watch in politics in 2013″. The president was criticized by Democrats, particularly Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY), for his lack of diversity in some of his presidential choices for his second term. He was likewise criticized for his male-centric inner circle. Like Jealous, Rangel is optimistic the president will fill some open spots in his cabinet and on the Court with diversity in mind. President Obama has only appointed two Supreme Court justices to the bench, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan; both highly qualified and competent women. Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 79, might step-down from her post with an eye toward retirement. Justices Scalia and Kennedy are both 76. Therefore, it is highly probably that President Obama may have additional appointments before his term ends in four years.
