A Brush with Disaster

| 1 Comment
Ever find out you had a close brush with death or some other disastrous result, and you had no idea at the time? Tony Mauro posts at BLT that former NY Gov Mario "Cuomo has another strong link to the Supreme Court. He came very, very close to being appointed to replace Byron White when White retired in 1993. According to Jeff Toobin's book The Nine, Cuomo said yes twice to President Bill Clinton's offer of the nomination, only to change his mind, prompting Clinton to name Ruth Bader Ginsburg instead."

"Justice Cuomo" is enough to send shivers up my spine.

Indeed a scary thought. I guess RBG is a moderate when you compare her to him.
