Marc Thiessen had a good column today on this important issue.


Democrats Are Powerless to Block Trump's Supreme Court Nominee
And they have no one to blame but themselves.

In conclusion he says :
"Democrats are accusing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) of hypocrisy moving forward with a Supreme Court nominee during an election year. But McConnell never said he would not confirm nominees before midterm elections in the second year of a presidency. Three sitting justices were confirmed in midterm election years: Elena Kagan (August 2010), Samuel A. Alito Jr. (January 2006) and Stephen G. Breyer (August 1994) — as were retired Justice David Souter (October 1990) and Scalia (September 1986). Trump is going to do exactly what Presidents Obama, Bill Clinton and both Bushes did before him: He will nominate a qualified candidate to fill the High Court vacancy, and Senate Republicans will confirm his nominee. There is nothing the Left can do about it. If Democrats are upset, too bad. They should have confirmed Miguel Estrada."

I hope that he is right, Fred, and also I hope that Trump picks a good one.
