I say this not as a partisan of any kind, but as an advocate for the agreed legal/constitutional practice. Certainly in terms of the Judicial branch. The rules say then President Obama nominates and the Senate hears. After the hearings, the Senate may reject. Remember that day? Me neither.
The nomination President Obama had never had his day in court. Eventually he withdrew, it’s a tough task to weather that scrutiny in ordinary times. I’m not here to argue his merits.
Flanked by the president who promised to fill the seat of conservative Antonin Scalia with someone in the mold of the late justice, Neil Gorsuch was sworn in on Monday as the Supreme Court’s newest member — ending a bitter, yearlong fight that may forever change how Supreme Court battles are waged and won.
In a private ceremony at the Supreme Court and later in a public event at the White House, Gorsuch took separate constitutional and judicial oaths as the nation’s 113th justice.
