When Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. began the new Supreme Court term by congratulating Antonin Scalia on his 25th anniversary as a justice, it was a reminder that Justice Scalia is now 75 as is Anthony Kennedy and that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 78.

The President only nominates....it's the SENATE that approves the nomination! Primaries are important if you want the right senators seated........

The Gop is spineless and if they take the senate but not the WH, They will cave and give the ok to whom ever Obama nominates.
