If we all could get a dime for every word that gets written or spoken about filling a U.S. Supreme Court vacancy by every politician and national media personality we could all retire and spend winters in the Bahamas. Debate over whether the U.S. Senate should wait until after the presidential election to name a successor to long-time justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg began within minutes of the announcement of her passing at the age of 87 last Friday. Of course republicans who control the senate in Washington will try to push through a replacement for Ginsburg prior to election day. Of course democrats in the senate will be demanding that the position on our nations’ highest court remain vacant until after Election day. That’s how the process works. As the old saying goes elections have consequences. It’s not likely democrats will be able to stop the republicans in the senate from appointing a justice more conservative than Ginsburg was. With the court facing cases concerning issues like the constitutionality of Obama Care, whatever happens will have a major impact on all of us. That’s the way I see it.
