The Democrats' desperate attempt to put a stealth liberal on the Supreme Court

NY Times:

Democrats Press G.O.P. to Consider a Supreme Court Pick

In what appeared to be a political feint, the name of Nevada’s Republican governor leaked out as a potential nominee, as the Democratic power structure mobilized to break Republican opposition.
If the Democrats were serious about wanting to name a GOP Governor who could get confirmed they would be pushing Texas's Greg Abbott, a distinguished layer who has had some experience in taking issues to the Supreme court.   Sandoval is a squish on abortion so he would not be acceptable to replace Justice Scalia.  I suspect he was not a serious choice, but was being pushed by Harry Reid to try to get some movement out of the Republican senators who oppose allowing an Obama appointment.  It should be noted that the NY Times was all for not approving court appointments in the last year of Republican presidents.
