The Next Supreme Court Justice

The Huffington Post The Huffington Post 4/03/2016 Robert Brustein

After the death of Antonin Scalia, Mitch McConnell has demanded that the next Supreme Court Justice be appointed by the next president, even though Barak Obama has been vetting a candidate for the post named Jane L. Kelly. Ironically, she is a Republican from the same state, Iowa, as Charles Grassley, another vocal critic of Obama's right to make a Court choice. Both McConnell and Grassley are playing right into the hands of the Democratic Administration.
After Hillary Clinton is elected President in November, she would be wise to choose the best possible candidate for that exalted seat -- namely, Barak Obama himself. And there would no longer be a recalcitrant Republican mob in the Senate to block this wise decision.
