President Joe Biden's nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday that she decides cases from a "neutral posture" and would continue to do so if confirmed to be the first Black woman in history seated on the nation's highest court.

Democrats celebrated Jackson's nomination during the more than four hours of debate, noting her background as a former federal public defender and longtime federal judge who is supported by a broad range of groups, including those representing law enforcement. Because of that, her supporters said, she should win bipartisan support.

"If I am confirmed, I commit to you that I will work productively to support and defend the Constitution and this grand experiment of American democracy that has endured over these past 246 years," Jackson told the committee.

    1. The facts are, she’s more qualified than all the others who happened to be white, and that you didn’t even think of questioning.

    1. I wish they could identify on the real issues like giving Iran nukes,our National sovereignty. Our national and global economy, are children.
      🧻🚽 we’re already halfway down the toilet and nobody seems to care

    1. so where’s the part that makes it okay for Biden to hire someone based solely on skin color or gender?

    2. @FridayYT Where’s the part that suggests that’s what he’s done? The fact that you just disregarded her impressive list of qualifications in that link says it all.

    3. @THE___TRUTH um how about the part where the exact words out of his mouth were, “i will be nominating a black woman ” 🤦‍♂️

    4. @FridayYT It should go without saying that he’d only appoint one who’s also qualified. The fact that you find that so hard to understand/believe says more about you than Biden. 🙄🤫
