Conservatives Quickly Refuse Any Obama Court Replacement After Antonin Scalia's Death "Senate must simply refuse to appoint anybody."I would suggest to Majority Leader McConnell that this is a very stupid, short-term strategy. Does he really believe that Trump or Cruz - the two GOP front-runners - will win the general election in November? Let's imagine for the moment that his political instincts, which have so far served him well, recognize the likelihood of a Dem victory in November... ... a Dem victory accompanied by loss of GOP control of the Senate. Does he believe either Clinton or Sanders would nominate a less radical/left-wing/progressive replacement for Scalia than would Obama? Obama recognizes that the GOP now controls the Senate, and is therefore constrained to nominate at least a MODERATE liberal! Neither Clinton nor Sanders would be so constrained!
