Oprah for the Supreme Court

Justin Webb | 07:37 UK time, Tuesday, 5 May 2009

General Jones works standing up. So did Lord Palmerston. So did Donald Rumsfeld. I am going to try it in the hope that people respect and fear me. Not that the General seemed the remotest bit interested in conflict with anyone.

The Supreme Court nomination is not a big deal in terms of changing the balance of the court - it won't - but it might say something wonderfully interesting about the Law Professor Presidency.

Here are my suggestions: (bear in mind they don't have to be lawyers)

John McCain

Tony Blair (visiting)

Oprah Winfrey (seriously: empathy)

The Governator (he is coming to the end of his term and has a mind to match his muscles.)
