What is really sad here is that there are many others who are not of color or female that have much higher qualifications and experience.

"There is an established procedure that she completely disregarded" - heelsrule
Well given she establised the procedure, I guess she can disregard it. She's perfectly legal in doing so, though it's not good government and it's a bit hypocritical.
"The move provoked protests from Republicans, but the state constitution gives the governor the power to fill vacancies on the court." - article
Too, too funny! While the Republicans were altering the state constitution to squash their perception of North Carolina's biggest threat, the evil practice of gay marriage, they completely missed this one. :)

So tacky, Governor Perdue.

"I am not a Perdue fan, but the republicans who think she should not fill a vacancy on the court while she is governor are an arrogant lot, full of themselves."
It's not THAT she made the appointment, but rather HOW she made the appointment. There is an established procedure that she completely disregarded to make sure her choice was appointed. Why have any procedures if you don't follow them?

She couldn't have picked a worse choice. Another useless lib in the court system.

Bev learned well from Obama. If something stands in the way of what you want to do just issue an executive order to circumnavigate the established policy.

Good ol' Beverly Perdue is still working on her legacy......"Do as I say and not as I do"

And Perdue proves once again she's a hyprocrite in what she says, then does. Thank goodness she is on her way out.
