Exactly. And Kavanaugh is purportedly an originalist, so that sounds like a good pick.
Via Free Beacon:
Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump’s newly annoucened nominee to fill Anthony Kennedy’s Supreme Court seat, talked Monday night about the importance of the Court not making law.
“A judge must be independent and must interpret the law, not make the law,” said Kavanaugh, speaking during an event where Trump announced his nomination. “A judge must interpret statutes as written. And a judge must interpret the Constitution as written, informed by history and tradition and precedent.”
Kavanaugh, who was nominated to fill Kennedy’s seat after the justice announced his impending retirement last month, also thanked Trump for his appreciation of the role of the American judiciary. He noted that no other president has consulted as many people from such extensive backgrounds about Supreme Court nominations as Trump.
“Mr. President, I am grateful to you, and I am humbled by your confidence in me,” Kavanaugh said.
