She tried so hard to hold out.

 

Just 4 more months to go.  :(

 

What are the odds of Trump/McConnell getting another judge on the SC before inauguration day?

I think they will, but we'll see. My husband doesn't think it can be done.

 

I know some of our friends here suffer from anxiety and depression. Please, take care of yourselves. We can and will get through this.

Oh, good. The GOP is just SALIVATING for Gilead now. No "let the voters decide!" THIS time, I'm sure. I wish there was a way to move to Canada.

And may Ms. Ginsberg RIP. She was a WARRIOR.

That was one of my first thoughts as well. I feel bad for the upcoming generation of women.  I am horrified that the worst president in modern times will shape the court so profoundly.  I wonder what effect this will have on climate change and the environment as well. Plus, I would almost bet he's going to pick another middle aged white man.

They will absolutely ram someone through.

 

The stakes are now everything. And the only recourse for a Biden administration will be to pack the courts and expand the SC. I don't want to hear excuses.

Can that be done if we don't have the Senate? I have no idea how it works.

Without the Senate? No.

 

But if we DO flip the Senate? Absolutely. Packing is the ONLY option.

 

Murkowski only did that for cover. No one else will do so.

Can three more republicans flip?  I know Romney is anti-Trump but he’s super religious so he wouldn’t mind another conservative judge on the SC.  Any chances of Susan Collins growing a spine?

Let's face it. There will be another zealot sullying the court. All we can hope for are two things.

 

1. Biden wins the election.

2. Dems take the Senate.

 

If these two things do occur, then they can add two or three more justices and pack the court. Otherwise...
