Mitch McConnell vowed in a statement (Links to an external site.) that President Donald Trump’s nominee to replace her would receive a Senate vote.It’s a markedly different approach than he took in the previous presidential election year of 2016, when a different Supreme Court justice died more than eight months before voters went to the polls to choose President Barack Obama’s successor.In February 2016, shortly after Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, McConnell issued a statement saying, “This vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.” On March 1 of that year, he tweeted (Links to an external site.), “The American people will choose the next president who in turn will nominate the next Supreme Court justice. #LetThePeopleDecide.”McConnell went on to block Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, from receiving a confirmation hearing in the Senate.’How do you characterize the statements and actions of Senator Mitch McConnell regarding appointment of a replacement for Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, just two hours after her death, and just 46 days before the Presidential election where there is a possibility for a new President?

Explain______________________________10) One of the most interesting facets of Judge Bader Ginsburg’s life was her close relationship with Judge Antonin Scalia. They were almost always at opposite ends of the spectrum when it came to decisions of the Supreme Court. As attorneys we often battle fiercely in Court over legal issues, yet we strive to maintain civility and professional respect for one another. Judges Bader Ginsburg and Scalia often wrote scathing opinions in opposition to the other side’s view, yet they maintained a very close personal friendship that spanned decades.Regarding their relationship, “If you can’t disagree ardently with your colleagues about some issues of law and yet personally still be friends, get another job, for Pete’s sake,” is how Scalia once described their lifetime appointments.“We are two people who are quite different in their core beliefs, but who respect each other’s character and ability,” Ginsburg said of Scalia. “There is nobody else I spend every New Year’s Eve with.” If Supreme Court justices can be friends with the colleagues with whom they vehemently disagree regarding legal issues, certainly we can all do the same in society.Do you believe that this type of mutual respect and professionalism should be expected, even demanded, of our elected officials?
