Democrats appoint Supreme Court justices who tend to be liberal. Republicans tend to appoint justices who veer to the conservative. But not always. Some justices surprise the Hell out of the presidents who appoint them. Former Chief Justice Warren, for one.
This decision by Republican to hold off any Obama appointment to replace Antonin Scalia is just so much nonsense.
If Republicans want to pack the court with right-thinking troglodytes, they’ll just have to elect the next president.
