2. How many until the day after the election?

That is likely the minimum, depending on who wins the GE. And if it's us, it will depend on what the Senate races did. If they lose the Senate, they MIGHT just decide not to wait.

3. no reason this can't get done

obama will nominate someone above reproach. the rw gop will stomp up and down like two year olds, and they will lose the wh in a near landslide.

obama will not back down on this. i hope and hope.

12. I've never been one for fake sorrow, I say do it now. Put their obstructionism and disrespect for

 

democracy on full display. I have full faith Obama will chose someone great, and get them seated.

15. It will take him until after the funeral to pick someone anyways

While I am sure he already has a short list of people at the ready there is some prep work that needs to be done before an announcement can be made. He won't have a pick ready until after the funeral anyways.

5. I hope Obama nominates someone soon.

Respect might mean waiting until after the funeral.

6. A buddy of mine...

...who's a Texas crazy, already had a post up of some resolution that he feels the Senate should use to hold up any Obama nominees. Didn't even wait 24 hours to try and hold up the country. Some patriot.

13. not sure if it was here or another forum, but a very good point

was brought up to consider:

Since this is an election year, and we can't easily forget 2000 (Nader was not the spoiler), what if it's a tie and we need the Supreme court to intervene on the election??


If there isn't an odd number (ie Scalia not replaced), what happens??

Is there a statue or law or something that says how long the SCOTUS can go without a full 9 justices seated??

17. If it's a tie it differs to the lower court.

Without precedent.

14. How many days before Obama nominates Scalia's replacement?

Add those days to 125, then subtract from 342.

26. Thank you so much for this info

am stealing - er - actually will cite this post.
Grassley is one of my worthless senators and he seems bound to stop all nominations until Cruz is sworn in.
