"After a few weeks of taking selfies in the woods, I thought it'd be a good idea to come out," the former Secretary of State told the audience, to appreciative (tinged with desperation? It's possible I'm projecting) laughter. In case you've already forgotten, this is what a president sounds like.

———————————————————————————————-

Only a few hours after Justice Antonin Scalia suddenly died this past weekend, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared that the vacancy on the Supreme Court shouldn’t be filled until the next President is sworn in next January.

Senator McConnell said the American people should have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court justice. He’s right – and, in fact, they did – when President Barack Obama won the 2012 election by five million votes.

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution says the President of the United States nominates justices to the Supreme Court, with the advice and consent of the Senate. I can’t find a clause that says “…except when there’s a year left in the term of a Democratic President.”

Join me in telling Mitch McConnell: The Republican Senate must do its job and commit to giving President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee timely consideration and an up-or-down vote. Sign the petition right now.
