Probably one of the best comments of the night was one person who asked something along the lines of:
Since Obama's choice was blocked because he only had another year left in office, shouldn't Trump's choice be blocked because he too only has less than a year left in office?
The Democrats need to be firm in agreeing to compromise on the next SCOTUS appointment only if Obama's nominee Merrick Garland is confirmed this month to replace Scalia.
Any Democrat voting for Gorsuch is part of the problem and not part of the solution.
The only tactics that work with Republicans is a taste of their own foul 'toxic' behavior. Block Gorsuch as long as they have Garland. Fight against all 'players' here ... Pence, McConnell, Ryan, other Republican senators - their majority is dishonest, self-serving; i.e., dangerous.
