Republicans say they need an odd number of justices in case of an election dispute, but Clarence Thomas literally has a chapter in his autobiography about how much he hates Biden, so wouldn't he have to recuse himself.
Biden was head of the Judiciary committee during the Thomas hearing and the more concerning things from then were how he allowed Hill to be treated by his Republican colleagues and his absolute failure to attack Thomas on his record, relying on sex abuse allegations instead
Biden was a coward then. He didn't want to be on telly as a white guy calling a black man racist, but in fact, Thomas perused ~zero~ discrimination cases when Reagan made him head of the EEOC.
Thomas can go to hell.
