Not a bad choice. Certainly not one that should scare Democrats too much. Two reasons:
She is a self styled originalist. She like Scalia's philosophy. She has written that she did not think that Roe V. Wade should be overthrown but rather that the question really is who pays for abortions. That is the first thing.
The second reason that she should not scare democrats is that nothing serves to energize their base like a threat to Roe V. Wade.
A smart republican would not want Trump to appoint someone before the election just for this reason. Sadly there aren't any smart republicans to speak of and Trump sees everything in the light of his poll numbers with his base.
It is time for the democrats to realize that the US is essentially a conservative country and will be for about another 25 years or so. They need to stop the barn burning and go at republicans on two fronts; integrity and white middle class values. They won't to their peril.
