1. Perhaps, yes, it will add more motivation on both sides for voting...

10. well democrats couldn't stop him.

24. yet another way the media sucks.

a monumentally significant change but they barely covered it, and mostly as if it were some arcane detail of congressional procedure.

5. Could the nominee be so repugnant

that Corker, Flake, and Collins all decide to withhold their votes.

No. It is done.

6. Kennedy

With 51 to 49 in favor of rethuglicans, and Pence’s ability to break a 50-50 tie, you would need two republicans to vote no, assuming all democrats also vote no.

8. NO, it's the same as gorsuch

the new justice will be confirmed well ahead of november elections. Same sex marriage ruling and roe v wade are officially on life support. I’ll give them two years tops. And of course we can forget about obamacare as we know it, not to mention medicare for all, the new SC will strike those lawa if passed in a heartbeat.

11. Any chance that

stare decisis would stay Roberts hand on Roe and Obergefell? He now has to think about his legacy as the swing justice (and chief justice).

12. not on those two issues

they werent acts of congress. He is more open to rulings if it’s acts of congress like ACA. I have no doubt he’d overturn those two cases in a pinch to ‘correct errors of the past’.

15. Republicans got rid of the judicial filibuster, remember, so I don't think we have too many options.
