    I was about to say this same thing...

    I'm well aware that modern politics is bare-knuckles, but I think Mitch could have waited till a sitting Supreme cooled down to make a political announcement.

    It'll be interesting to see how this goes, I think there are a bunch of Senators who have (R) by their name who haven't realized that the Republican party has moved on without them.

    I don't think she's Conservative enough. More and more Catholics are going Left every day. And then there is this:

    I don't like that. And quite frankly, I don't give a rat's behind what her religious beliefs are.....Jesus isn't appointing her, Man is. I want someone who is staunchly pro-gun, not pro-religion.

    This isn’t your grandmother who died, leaving behind a precious collection of her favorite china.

    One of the ten most powerful people in our government dies during a critical juncture for the future of our Republic.

    You want people to stand around and not immediately address plans for that position?

    Don’t be naive.

    I’ll notice Schumer didn’t waste any time offering an opinion either.

    The constitution allows Communists to run for President.

    My Grandmother had four kids who made a better life for their kids.

    She also did not lie or put her own beliefs ahead of others or fall for communism as the saving grace of America. Bader was a hard core progressive who believed that the US should strive to be like Europe.

    Susan Collins is up for re-election this year. CNN shows she is below 50% support.

    This will decide her fate.

    Think harder.

    There's a difference between Short-term toast and Long-term toast.
    Four year presidential term is Short-term, relative to Life-time appointment which is Long-Term.

    We were toasted 8yrs until 2016. But that short term toast was repairable.

    That's why she'd wish to sit this one out.

    Only a congenital imbecile wouldn't realize if the roles were switched, the Demsheviks would have done exactly the same thing, and not a single one of them would step out of line.

    This.

    She'll either lobby to not hold any vote at all, or vote against. Same with Romney and Murkowski.

    That’s why her state’s constituents need to pressure her to vote for Trump’s nominee.

    In the end all these politicians just want to secure their position.

    Romney has been bitter ever since he lost his chance to be president. Dude just seems miserable now.

    Trump mopped the floor with him. He`ll be mad to the day he dies. Bruised ego. Mitt`s problem is that his ego exceeds his talent.
