Interesting. Back in 1992, then-Senator Obama was very emphatic that President Bush shouldn't nominate anyone to the Supreme Courtm that no one should be nominated until after the election.

Here is what he said...

"the Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling confirmation hearings on the nomination until after the political campaign season is over. Some will criticize such a decision and say that it is nothing more than an attempt to save a seat on the court in hopes that a Democrat would be able to fill it. Instead, it would be our pragmatic conclusion that once the political season is under way (and it is) action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over. That is what is fair to the nominee and essential to the process. Otherwise, it seems to me . . . we will be in deep trouble as an institution."

So according to Biden, it is "pragmatic" and "fair" to block nominations until after an election is completed. And to do otherwise, would put the institution IN DANGER!!

Life's a funny old dog, isn't she?

A good case to ignore any nomination.
