Democrats have an endgame in mind when it comes to thwarting Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation. Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, revealed as much in an interview this week.
Speaking to Politico, Hirono said Senate Democrats will try to keep retired Justice Anthony Kennedy's seat vacant until after the 2020 elections, should Kavanaugh's confirmation ultimately fail.

Elections only matter when Democrats win.
Trump will get Kavanaugh, and two or three others.
Man is the Left going to melt down.
‘ol Crazie Mazie.....
Like the song youdems must hate by now says: “You can’t always get what you want...”
Picture of EVIL.
This is their fantasy:
Dems delay vote on Kavanaugh till after election.
Dems win Senate.
Dems vote against Kavanaugh.
Dems tell Trump they will not allow any nominee to come up for a vote until after 2020 election.
Unless he nominates Garland.
Let them melt down so far that they can be hunted down.
Well then it will be too late for Trump to nominate anyone until 2021... < /s >
That means they know that Ginsberg and/or Breyer are going to retire, and they hope they will win in 2020. Which they wont. Trump is going to landslide 2020.
Make me a sammich, Mazie.
Make me a sammich, Mazie.
And a cold beer. Then start dinner. Barefooted.
Maize also known as corn. Would that make mazie cornie hironi?
If that were the case, President Trump would need to explore the possibility of a recess appointment. Then watch the fireworks.
Neither side wants to confirm the SCOTUS picks of the other. Why is this news?
No, they don’t, but their tactics appear to have boosted Trump’s approvals by around 8-10 points if you look at before and after polling on RCP. To compare apples to apples, Reuters 9/5-9/11 was 43 to 56 with a 13 point negative spread. Reuters 9/12-9/18 was 47 to 52 with a 5 point negative spread.
That thing from Hawaii is a complete weirdo.
A successful confirmation of Kavanaugh will suppress their turn out.
If the democrats really want to draw this out their stooge could make an announcement on Monday that she is willing to testify thereby delaying the vote for another week or so. This would give them more time to trot out more metoo accusers.
I wouldn’t put it past them to find some kid that Kavanaugh coached to come out and make some equally unfounded accusation.
The dems really want their pound of flesh for McConnell’s cheating them out of a SCOTUS justice. Besides, it would be a twofer. Punish someone who helped impeach Clinton inc. for sexual perversions.
