JOE—BHO thought she was way too liberal—this is your chance to be your own man!

  • She’s already written a Supreme Court opinion on LGBTQ issues!
  • Served in the Obama Justice Department
  • Worked at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund
  • “A true liberal, a very strong progressive and a visionary architect of the law and jurisprudence”—Tom Goldstein
  • Liberals were disappointed when Barack went with Sonia Sotomayor in 2009, who’s way more conservative than Karlan
  • Believes the Constitution should “evolve”
  • Wants to take the “undue burden” test that makes it so hard to regulate abortion and apply it to all sorts of things, like economic inequality
  • She’s a fighter—when she testified against Trump at the impeachment hearings, she even went after his 13-year-old kid!
  • Won’t even walk by the Trump hotel—she crosses the street to avoid it
