Biden Says Too Much

Joe Biden is refusing to release a list of the judges he would consider nominating to the Supreme Court should he become president. In explaining why, Biden suggests that “putting a judge’s name on a list like that could influence that person’s decision making as a judge, and that would be wrong.”

It would be wrong yes. And that Biden thinks that this is likely behavior from the people he has in mind tells us exactly why he is reluctant to name them.
