According to the republicans (senate) recent comments, it matters little because they will simply hold up any nomination that they don't like. It is an interesting play and certain one that could backfire in future elections. If Clinton wins and the republicans hold onto the Senate, they next Senate elections will be extremely interesting because presidential nominations for the SC will no longer have any significance unless they have a political alignment with the Senate. Even if Trump gets elected, he might try to "stick it to the Senate republicans" by making nominations that they won't approve. I think SC justice Thomas articulated this situation extremely well about Washington in his speech yesterday. It is broken and it is broken because of BOTH sides of the aisle. I find funny how some of Trump supporters now speak of a possible revolution. Yet, if liberals spoke of such, the conservatives would be all crazed over such thoughts or comments. Conservatives are no better then liberals, and liberals are no better then conservatives. Both are in essence a bunch of broken people, who have lost sight of the process and frankly the intent of the founding fathers. I can only imagine that there were some, at that time, that didn't fully agree with the founding fathers, but yet somehow this nation progressed. I was speaking yesterday with a gentleman from South Africa and he laughed at how Americans suggest that American isn't great any more. He commented that those in poverty in this country would still rank in the top 1% of all people world wide. He suggested that if that isn't great, then people must have a perspective that itself is somewhat broken.
