Lieberman and Mfume

A lot of left-wingers are anxious over Bush's campaign statement that he would prefer to nominate Supreme Court Justices on the model of Scalia and Thomas. Compare that to Joseph Lieberman's recent statement that he would like to nominate Kweisi Mfume, a non-lawyer, to the Supreme Court. I suspect that Lieberman was joking here, but one can only wonder what sort of controversy would erupt if Bush said, even jokingly, that he would like to nominate a similarly ideological person from the right -- say, Pat Robertson, who at least has a degree from Yale Law School.
