  1. Insider

    An insider is a member of any group of people of limited number and generally restricted access. The term is used in the context of secret, privileged, hidden or otherwise esoteric information or knowledge: an insider is a "member of the gang" and as such knows things only people in the gang know. In our complicated and information-rich world, the concept of insider knowledge is popular and pervasive, as a source of direct and useful guidance. In a given situation, an insider is contrasted with an outside expert: the expert can provide an in-depth theoretical analysis that should lead to a practical opinion, while an insider has firsthand, material knowledge. Insider information may be thought of as more accurate and valuable than expert opinion.

  4. Lifelong New Yorker Andy Maskin:

    An element of this that interests me is that everyone talks about being the ‘outsider’, everyone is ‘I’m not from Washington, I’m an outsider or I’m not from – insert state capital here – I’m outsider. Nobody campaigns and says ‘I’m an insider.’ The ‘outsider’ is kind of the key word.

Wade would be overturned in coming years : I don't think the core case -- Roe's holding that women have a right to abortion -- I don't think that will change, but I think the question of whether people can get late-term abortions -- how many restrictions can be put on clinics -- I don't think that will change. Brett Kavanaugh, steady insider The federal appeals court here in Washington is seen as a professional stepping-stone to Supreme Court. Three current justices( John Roberts, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Clarence Thomas) served on that bench before joining the high court, as did Scalia.

It is the image that may cement – or sink – the Supreme Court aspirations of Brett Kavanaugh. Brett Kavanaugh elevation to the federal appeals court was celebrated with a Rose Garden swearing-in by a fellow Catholic who's now retiring from the bench, Justice Anthony Kennedy, for whom Brett Kavanaugh served as a law clerk in 1993. Front and center : Brett Kavanaugh former boss, President George W. Bush, the man who nominated Brett Kavanaugh. I chose Brett Kavanaugh because of the force of Brett Kavanaugh mind, the breadth of Brett Kavanaugh experience and the strength of Brett Kavanaugh character.
