As Mistress of the most-watched court show on television, Judge Judy Sheindlin has a distinct lead in the field of candidates being considered to fill the vacancy left on the U.S. Supreme Court by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.

3. Most recently, she received the endorsement of two important journalists.
