Sen. Susan Collins’ support for Ketanji Brown Jackson

It was good to hear this morning that Sen. Susan Collins (R) of Maine will be supporting the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court.

As mentioned before on this blog, Judge Jackson is probably left of center. However, in the universe of left of center judges, one would be hard put to find a more well-reasoned set of answers to the questions posed to her during the hearings.

That was, apparently, also true during her hearings for confirmation to the U.S. Appeals Court. She was confirmed, in that case, by a bi-partisan vote of 53-44. Let’s hope that the current vote will be even more bi-partisan.

Update: When the vote was cast Murkowski and Romney joined Collins in voting to confirm Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court.
