President Trump must be held to his promise on the Supreme Court

Once the rounds of celebratory parties are finished and the warm afterglow of victory begins to fade, President Trump (which is going to take me a while to get used to typing) has a long list of agenda items to see to. There are none more important than turning his attention to the Supreme Court. This was probably the biggest driving factor which drew many of the more skeptical Trump voters to his side. You may recall that back in September The Donald released his shortlist of potential nominees to fill the seat held by Antonin Scalia and it was one of the few moments of the campaign when even his most ardent conservative critics found reason to at least grudgingly admit that he’d gotten it right.
For a refresher, here are the names he floated.
Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, US Court of Appeals Judge Margaret Ryan, Iowa Supreme Court Justice Edward Mansfield, George Supreme Court Justice Keith Blackwell, Florida Supreme Court Justice Charles Candy, US Court of Appeals Chief Judge Timothy Tymkovich, US District Court Judge Amul Thapar, US District Court Judge Federico Moreno and Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Young.
Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. I'd be a happy 
camper if the next 2 SCOTUS vacancies were filled by 
these Constitutional Conservatives
While I’m sure that there are more than a few differences between them and we’ll need time to research them more thoroughly, I’m not really inclined to argue for or against any of these candidates when compared to another. As long as they are fair and impartial with a willingness to hew to the Constitution and not be tempted to venture off into some ungainly penumbra of implied rights I’m sure we’ll be fine. Of course, that assumes that Trump sticks to his promise and either chooses from that list or suggests alternates from the same mold.
