8. Obama is not going to throw Garland under the bus.

Garland accepted the nomination knowing that it was going to be a reach given Mitch's stonewalling. To dump him now would be disloyal. And as for Hillary, I suspect that if he is still in limbo come January I suspect that he will offer to withdraw but Hillary should NOT accept that but instead resubmit his nomination. The Republicans have gamed the process and Hillary should not enable them by conceding the point. I know the arguments about getting a younger nominee etc. But Garland is very qualified and should have been given a vote. Do not compound the injustice for political reasons.
