CNN legal analyst Joan Biskupic noted that while Ketanji Brown Jackson’s historic confirmation won’t change the ideological balance of the Supreme Court, she will bring a fresh perspective to the court.

“Just look at the difference in the ages. Stephen Breyer, who’s retiring at age 83, is 32 years older than her. She’s going to bring some fresh thoughts, some fresh blood, if not a different ideology than his,” Biskupic said on CNN.

“She also has this very distinctive experience as a former trial judge and a former federal public defender. So, a different attitude around the justice’s private table,” she added.
