Although he wasn't a justice I agreed with all the time (and I consider myself conservative), my condolences go out to his family. Despite being polar opposites, the Scalias and Ginsburgs were very good friends.

I think more people, especially politicians should see the friendship he had with Ruth Bader Ginsberg as an example, as they were good friends even though they were opposites politically.

They're not going to approve any nominee until there is a new president, simple as that. No battle, no nothing, just no.

I nominated MDD and Kraich for the vacant position, they can share, take turns :bounce: :bounce: I am reminded of the words of Clarence Darrow who [paraphrasing] said that while he didn't personally wish for anybody's demise, he did admit to reading certain obituaries with great pleasure.

Yeah, he's a dictator, wanting to extend civil rights to gays, and fighting against voter suppression. :P
