It doesn't work like that....You need retirements...
He is saying they would add justices
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

Dems would just pack the court the next time they won.
I don't think they will have the public support to do that.

After Kennedy's retirement the oldest Justices will be Ginsburg at 85 and Breyer ay 79. Imagine Trump getting to pick BOTH of their replacements!
Ginsburg won't retire under Trump no matter what. She'll need to be pulled out of there on a stretcher with a sheet over her face.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Of course not, but especially at her age it may not be up to her.

We would get the most entertaining confirmation hearings in the history of confirmation hearings.
Seriously, Trump should nominate him just so we could have a few days of confirmation hearings then withdraw the nomination.

There's an art here. Anyone too conservative, and Collins/Murkowski might reject. McCain is unlikely to make it back, which means the vote would be 50-49 without him, so even 1 Republican defecting would sink the vote. Depending on how Trump wants to play this, he might nominate someone who it would be tough for Dems up for reelection in red states to vote against - that would take someone more centrist.

I could also see a senator or 2 insisting on someone similar to Kennedy in order to keep relative partisan balance.
