Apologies if wrong board but idk where else to put this.

Anyways, since there now are no liberal men on the court, when will be the next time that a Democratic President appoints a man?

Almost surely not to replace an existing liberal woman, and probably not until after there is already a majority-female court.  I'm not sure what would happen if there was a majority-female court because of multiple conservative women (say a woman replaces Thomas or Alito when they retire under Republicans) and then a Democrat gets to replace a conservative man.

On the 11th of Never. I think Dem Presidents are going to take RBG's "when there are Nine" quote seriously. Some GOPers may even appoint women to try to improve their standing with female voters post-Dobbs.

I'm far more interested in wondering about the next time a GOP President will appoint A Not Catholic, myself.

Gorsuch was raised Catholic and stayed high-church upon switching denominations, so I'm still counting him here.

It actually sounds similar to me. Mom was a lapsed Evangelical, dad was a lapsed Catholic, was last active in the same church Gorsuch is.

Gorsuch, while typically siding with religious interests, comes across to me as the least personally religious of the six Republican appointed justices (certainly at least of the five justice Dobbs majority).

Yes, because his mother was powerful and he developed somewhat of a respect for women who work, as opposed to the rest of the sexist clowns.

Probably the next one they appoint. The current imbalance will definitely be noted, and I think even to replace a liberal woman democrats won't feel pressured to appoint another woman to replace her.

Kavanaugh's mom was an attorney, and she pursued it after he was born.  Barrett obviously has a job, and FWIW has always had a more prestigious one relative to her husband.

We rarely know WHEN another vacancy will occur. Clarence Thomas could have a fatal heart attack or start suffering Alzheimer's symptoms at any time. John Roberts already has had a mild heart attack. Sonia Sotomayor might decide to suddenly retire at a relatively young age (compared to what age most Supreme Court Justices choose to retire) like David Souter.

The very next vacancy that occurs might very well be filled by a man appointed by a Democratic President. But it almost certainly won't be a straight, white man. I might enjoy it if the next appointee is Judge Sri Srinivasan.

The ones who care will probably be happy with a 5:4 woman-to-man ratio.

I do think it stops being an issue at that point.  IMO a Republican will want to make a show of appointing the 5th woman and will do it when Thomas or Alito retires.

It could very well be the next nominee, but he would almost certainly be a nonwhite man.

It's not likely to be a straight white male, but it could happen soon, especially with four women currently on the court.

Remember when people said Democrats would never nominate a straight white man for President again, but then they elected Joe Biden, with Bernie Sanders the runner-up?

I am legitimately expecting the next nominee to either be a Latino man or an East Asian man.

James Ho from the 5th circuit would be a conservative dream nominee.  If Republicans get to replace Alito and Thomas with a substantial senate majority, I think they would pick Britt Grant and James Ho.  Given conservative disappointment with Roberts and some lesser degree of disappointment with Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, I think there will be a lot of pressure to avoid picking anyone who lives in or grew up in D.C.  Also, the major GOP constituency that's currently missing a seat on SCOTUS is Southern Evangelicals.

Don’t think there have been any actual subcontinental Asian SCOTUS nominees of either sex, but you’re probably right in that South Asians are better represented in the lower-level courts.

It is weird because Catholics are more split down the middle but are a tilt dem voting block. If they voted the way evangelicals voted then at least 50-60% of America would be Republican.

Catholicism is really into using formal logic and natural law arguments compared to other Christian denominations.  It's not at all surprising Catholics would be overrepresented as lawyers and judges.

I wouldn’t be surprised if democrats appoint a man. I would be shocked if democrats appointed a white person who isn’t Jewish though.
