    The existing SC judges would all agree, and participate in my scenario.

    I’m not alone in this.

    I'm not so optimistic.

    Even if they did it wouldn't stop Trump and McConnell passing a new appointee.

    She tried to hang in there to protect the country, likely at great discomfort to herself when she should of been celebrating the end with friends and family. A true Patriot. RIP Ruth.

    so the idea is that Trump and GOP senate ram through an appointee and then Roberts just never executes the Constitutional Oath and the Judicial Oath? What happens then?
    Damn shame, throwing away a perfectly good white boy like that

    The world mourns RBG, and the nation that's lost its way. What a terrible year.

    I don't think Roberts would do that.

    Yep.

    I believe I'm right that the Presidental oath has been given previously by a number of judges below that of status of chief justice or SC justice and once by a notary public.

    If one of my bernie bros says he can’t bring himself to vote for Biden, I may have to get physical.

    RIP RBG

    I bet Benny chimes in to blame this on Obama for being rich.

    She showed such grit battling and will be remembered fondly. RIP

    Suspect the Republicans will play dirty and hopefully it will produce a blue wave. That’s all I’ve got for optimism..

    Horrible news. RIP

    It's not a done deal that he gets his nominee pushed through. There is hope. And if he does when Biden wins the election and Democrats take the Senate they add a member to the court.

    This will play out as follows: Trump will say that he won't nominate someone until 2021 to force the religious wackos to vote for him. When/if he then loses to Biden he will promptly nominate the worst possible candidate for the senate to ram thru. What a f'ing nightmare.
