"We have to pick a great one"

Posted By: UtahFan from Germany

"We have to pick a great one. We have to pick one that's going to be there for 40 years, 45 years. We need intellect. We need so many things," Trump said during a campaign rally in Fargo, North Dakota.

The longest tenure of any judge in the history of the Supreme Court was 36 years and 209 days, and apart from that one no other judge served more than 35 years. On average, the time in office is around 16 years.

Assuming good health and an age of retirement around 80 years (see Anthony Kennedy), 40-45 years of service would mean an age of 35-40 at time of appointment.

In other word, the flushing sound you just heard is experience going down the drain as prerequisite for the office.

Rocker Ute icon NEW: You are assuming that Trump has thought through the math. Even if you are a supporter of Trump you have to admit he isn't the type of guy to get into that type of detail.
