A few months before leaving office? Hell no.
Good! Burn US political tradition to the GROUND.
Perhaps the NYTimes was told to write this because the Dems are going to block the nomination.
I think the effect of a split SC would infuriate the voters and that will result in a disastrous 2018 for the Senate Dems.
Very good post!
Yes, it's called "winning" and President-elect Trump assured us it was going to happen a lot.
But I bet they will change their tune if one of the libs’ seats becomes vacant. :-)
Well, if the NYT sez it; those paragons of truth and virtue.....Bwaaaa-haaa-haa!
And I’d change mine if one of the moderate or conservative seats were vacated!
Obama had a particular nasty habit of appointing communist bull dykes to our Supreme Court.
