In any other context, it would be fairly unusual to have such an intense political debate about the appointment of an obviously-qualified candidate for the Supreme Court as Judge Amy Coney Barrett. But this is 2020 and everything is unusual.
Judge Barrett, a mother of seven, demonstrated exceptional poise and knowledge through three days of grueling Senate committee hearings. Her exemplary performance under scrutiny, her career as a scholar of the Constitution, and her undeniable brilliance mark her as well-qualified for the court and a role model for young women.
