    Tradition is to allow it to remain vacant, if you do not, you have chosen
    to be the aggressor, to attack, to increase tension, and to escalate the
    situation. I do not think that that is a rational decision. Typically, it
    is pressed on to part of the voter decision in the next election in a
    situation like this, or so it seems, from what I’ve been told.

    Nice to hear pettiness so quickly inspired by a person with a good message.
    Are we at the point now that everyone has to sling crap in a party
    election? Can’t everyone just throw it at Trump? It’s the only message he
    understands!

    There’s still 10.5 months left in the election year. Almost 25% of a
    president’s term. I’m not familiar with the precedents, but my impression
    is that’s too much time to ask to wait for a new justice to be selected.
    Are the Senate Republicans just going to ask the other justices to sit
    around not hearing cases for 10.5 months + however long it takes for the
    selection? Instead they should do their jobs and ask for nominations and
    figure out which one they think would defend the Constitution and maintain
    the checks and balances between the 3 branches. Which probably wouldn’t
    work out, anyway, since both Obama and both parties in Congress has a
    history of ignoring the Constitution and Bill of Rights when it’s
    convenient.

    I hope this guy loses his election and ends up destitute realizing the only
    skill he ever had was groveling for money from Wall Street and acting like
    Hillary’s little slave. He probably won’t lose, he’s black and apparently
    half the Democratic Party just votes just according to whether somebody has
    a vagina or some dark skin.

    The idea of the President nominating a new Supreme Court Justice during an
    election year being controversial is ridiculous. It’s been done before. In
    1912, Taft nominated a Justice. In 1916, Wilson nominated two Justices. In
    November of 1987, Reagan nominated a Justice.

    Plus, the Constitution is what gives the President the power to nominate
    Justices. The Constitution says that the President shall nominate, with the
    advice and consent of the Senate, Judges of the Supreme Court.

    The vitriol and anger from Bernie supporters directed toward anyone who
    hasn’t endorsed Bernie does his candidacy no good. In leaving these
    comments, you serve as a representative of his campaign and you aren’t
    doing senator Sanders any favors by being petty, malicious and negative. A
    huge part of Bernie’s appeal is his ability to stick to issues and not
    resort to personal attacks. Why should we not strive to do the same?

    It’s hilarious that at 2:34, Stephen Colbert asked Cory a question about
    the SCOTUS replacement and Stephen had to cut him off at 4:57 because he
    didn’t answer the question. #OhPoliticians

    The problem with the Democratic Party *isn’t* that they can’t co-operate
    with the Republicans. It’s that they are way too EAGER to co-operate with
    the Republicans while the Republicans are refusing to play along. That’s
    not brave or open minded, that’s just sad. And it makes me question why
    even have the Democratic Party if they’ll just end up agreeing with the
    Republicans anyway. What you need is an actual left wing party to balance
    out the right wing (GOP) and the constantly compromising center (the
    Democrats) just so you can even arrive at that center some day.

    If Sanders doesn’t get the nomination, he should at least harness the
    momentum he’s gathered to start a third party. I don’t mean run as a third
    party candidate, I mean get some actual honest progressives together and
    found a new political party. Maybe that’d mean the Republicans would win in
    the short term but they wouldn’t win a majority (because there would be new
    voters and independents changing the numbers, as well as some possible
    ex-Republicans) and then the new party could ally with the Democrats and
    maybe finally get things done.

    Getting really tired of the “pro-Sanders at any cost” comments – as in,
    some of the people on here completely disregard another person’s good ideas
    JUST BECAUSE they don’t support Sanders. That is completely the wrong
    mindset, and what is leading the United States into the divisive political
    hell its already in. Cory Booker talked about some good ideas – love,
    kindness, how could anyone disrespect that just because he’s pro-Clinton?

    It’s unprecedented for a president to appoint a new judge during his *last

    I know the USA likes to list patriotism as an exclusively virtuous ideal,
    but the idea that patriotism means you must necessarily love all of your
    fellow countrymen is bogus. If anything, it so often divides people and
    leads to accusations of being unpatriotic. Real mending the rifts between
    individuals in the USA today will come from shared humanity, not shared
    nationality.
