Hi.Consider now a HHH win in 1968,
For sure he gets to replace Warren (already resigned), Black (died 1971) and Harlan (died 1971)
Reports are that Douglas was planning to retire but refused under Nixon, so with HHH he does.
And there is a decent chance Fortas still steps down
Assuming HHH loses in 72 (12 yr itch) you still have basically an 7 1/2-1 1/2 liberal court
On the liberal side you have Brennan, Marshall and the 5 HHH nominees plus 1/2 of Byron White
On the conservative Stewart and 1/2 of White.
So more tilted to left than court tilted to right now.
And assuming 76 is still poison chalice to lead to Democratic 80's you could see that top heavy tilt continue into today
I'm working on a TL in which HHH will be playing a role & I was wondering if you had any ideas who he'd nominate for his five picks?
