Like this is breaking news.

The vote will be along strict party lines. That some idiot democrat from West Virginia is going to vote "no" is hardly a shocking revelation.

He says he's voting "no" on the process. What a douche. His job is to vote on the nominee, and he is admitting that he has every intention to be derelict in meeting that responsibility...

I'm not a fan of thinking along the lines of, you're a hypocrite and so now I'm going to be one too.

All Dems will vote no on any nominee of President Trump, that’s a given.

It will be “news” if one votes yes.
They just spent three and a half years voting "no" on every Trump nomination to the judiciary or to his administration. That after they slow walked every nominee. Then they say they are innocent and don't play the system like Trump

I'm thinking Bartlett is a lock. The demoquacks can't stop it
Dems cannot stop any of them. The seat will be filled by Oct 30th.

Barrett seems like the front runner and they probably were saving her for when Ginsburg left...but I still
believe Lagora is going to be difficult for Trump to say no to. Lagora was confirmed by the Senate a year
ago 80-15. The women is Cuban-American, the dems cannot even put up a fight against her or Trump
wins Florida in a rout. Trump needs Florida to be reelected.. I think he goes for the win and selects Lagora.

As a side note...There are GOP folks who did not like the big spread she got in her appellate nomination. They
are/were afraid she may not be as conservative as they like. I think and believe that she got the big spread
because she is Cuban-American and they want to crack into the GOP stranglehold on Florida state government.

We'll know by tomorrow.

Which part of the Constitution applies here? Manchin said that he will vote no on the process. This isn't the first time anyone has said that they will vote no, and certainly not the first time that a vacancy on the Court and someone has been nominated within months of a presidential election. Remember Merrick Garland? Remember what McConnell said in 2016?

The part he missed when he accused Republican Senators of “hypocrisy” based on their stance on Merrick Garland in 2016.

The only Dem I will be watching in all this is Doug Jones from Alabama, he is running for election this time.

Which part of the Constitution is involved here? Which article or amendment?

The republicans' complete reversal of their stance on Garland does indeed fit the definition of hypocrisy.

Article 2, Section 2.

There is no reversal. The Senate has no obligation to provide advice and consent on appointments. The Senate majority has no obligation to provide advantage to the minority party.
