    In fair turnabout, let’s now take the measure of our Senators on the basis of “gravitas”, “temperament” and “leadership”.

    Hahahahahaha. Just kidding, guys. We don’t want to set the hurdles too high.

    Travel back into time to the error of the super ferry.

    Anyone catch Richard Borecca’s editorial article in today’s (Sunday) paper?

    Let me know when I can say ‘told ya’ so’.

    With that, since someone pointed out that Lingle needs to appoint from that list, and can’t add names at the point, can we start a viral campaign for Recktenwald to get the nod?

    The man gave eight hard years to Lingle. He is a good man, a smart man. He was a thoughtful Director/ department adminstrator. Of that list, he should be our CJ.

    hipoli, I’m not as convinced as some of you that Lingle is sour enough on Recktenwald to totally preclude his appointment, but as I said in my 8/8 column, it’s a numbers game to her to some extent. She really wants to be able to say she appointed three of the five Supreme Court justices and if she elevates Recktenwald, the appointment of his successor would likely be held for the next governor and she’d leave having appointed only two of the five and gift her potential Democratic successor with a Supreme Court pick right off the bat.

    I’d bet on Nakamura, her previous appointee as chief ICA judge who seems to have good cred. She’d also hate to leave his replacement to the next governor, I’m sure, but she’d still have appointed four of the six ICA judges.

    A longshot would be Bert Ayabe, her appointee to the Circuit Court, but I don’t know him well enough to say if he’s stellar enough that she could sell passing over a Supreme Court justice and ICA judge for him. I can’t imagine her choosing the Democratic appointees Foley or Pollock.

    I should add the caveat that my batting average predicting what Lingle will do is probably less than .500.
