    So watching Biden talking now, he admitted if elected, he will select an African American liberal women. He would “consult” both sides first though.
    lol.
    It is VERY important to select someone next week and have them (her) appointed this year.
    Senate-do your job!

    Trump will nominate some woman this week. FBI background checks could commence but there won’t be any hearings for quite a while. The Senate won’t even be in session for another 2 weeks. I don’t see any possibility of a Senate vote before the election. My guess the vote will be in the lame duck session.

    Yes, of course he should. It is literally his job. Not doing it would be a dereliction of his duty. Nominating judges is one of his most important responsibilities.

    Here's the more relevant tactics: Nominate the Hispanic/Latino Barbara Lagoa.

    Mitt goes against that, he's done in Utah.
    Dems go against that, they're done in south Florida where the Cubans traditionally voted Dems.
    Oh yes, there are other states with huge Latino and Hispanic votes. They're becoming part of the silent majority.

    Let's put the Dems against the Identity politics they like to play. Let that chicken comes home to roost!

    Yes, I voted for Trump - he works for me. One of the main reasons I voted for him was to appoint conservative Supreme Court Justices.

    I know I'm thinking narrowly, but Congress is weaponizing things that were never meant to be used for partisan reasons.

    Filling a SC vacancy promptly is just appropriate procedure. Impeachment is not intended to be a casual game.

    Some of the stuff I heard this weekend was disturbing.

    Since Trump already said he would nominate a woman this week, this question has already been answered. And when you're dealing with an unscrupulous adversary who has openly vowed to disrupt the process by any and all means and that no opption is off the table no matter how destructive it is to the country, Trump has nothing to lose by doing his Presidential duty and nominating someone for the vacancy immediately. JMHO.

    Does anyone else think it’s WRONG to make the initial SCOTUS screening by DNA/sex gland type??? This eliminates many (most?) of the senior experienced jurists in the U.S.! Doesn’t it embarrass the final Supreme Court Judge to say: “well, no, I wasn’t the most qualified attorney but I had the specified sex glands.....?”
