    I can see 2 justices.. One for the vacant spot, and 1 for ginsburg.. Who's the third?

    Maybe not on the first one....but depending on how close to the election a second or third comes up...I think we can expect some maneuvering to block. I don't think Trump gets 3 justices. I don't think the Dems will be able to put off the 1 that long...but as long as its a couple years before another drops off, we'll see some type of block, even though the Dems are not in control...I think they still have enough to block, delay, etc.
    However they set the precedent with the "nuclear option" so only a simple majority's needed.

    And i agree, i CAN see the dems doing something to hold his nominee up for say Ginsburg if she retires/croaks during his 4th year, assuming he's not running for a 2nd term..

    Ah.. That explains the 3rd spot..

    Back to the OP.

    Progressivism; such great ideas, they need to force you to follow them.

    Socialism is for the people, not the socialist.
