Whoever is the most qualified. Picking someone for any other reason is wrong.

Sykes.

He's going to get another one within the next year or two and he can put Pryor on then.

re: Trump Supreme Court pick dilemma
Pryor is plenty conservative, but this decision limiting federal authority is what makes me give him the edge:

United States v. Bellaizac-Hurtado (11th Cir. 2012). Pryor wrote the majority (2–1) opinion reversing the convictions of four defendants for drug-trafficking in the territorial waters of Panama because the Act that criminalized their behavior exceeded the authority of Congress under the Offences against the Law of Nations Clause of the Constitution. The opinion is the first in-depth interpretation of the constitutional provision by a federal circuit court. Judge Rosemary Barkett specially concurred in the judgment.[15]

Never trust a woman on the court.

We have had one decent female justice in my lifetime.

Sandra Day Oconner.

Appoint Sykes to replace Ginsberg if that hag ever dies or steps down.

Sykes. I like what I've read on both, and I'd like to see the left twist themselves into a pretzel attacking a woman.

Conservative judges don't like overturning jury convictions. Juror no speak the English? frick it, they were probably guilty anyway.

re: Trump Supreme Court pick dilemma
Yeap ted Cruz would be the best pick if he would take it. I would go for Pryor just for the liberal melt Trump should announce it after all his cabinet gets confirmed, save the women pick for the next opening. Also, tell McConnell the fricker better remove the fillbuster if need be

"Pick the most qualified"? That would be great if the Democrats followed the same principal. That boat has sailed a long long time ago, however. You have a sitting S.C. Justice openly ripping an at the time POTUS candidate.
