Obama should a nomination a replacement for Antonin Scalia. Supreme Court nominations are part of his job. Just because he only has less than a year doesn't mean he isn't still head of the country. Unfortunately, Congress is likely to play delaying games to block any nominee because they have become so obstructionist.
I feel that President Obama should nominate the Justice immediately rather than waiting for the next President to the same, The democratic of US Goverment are exemplified through right actions of the President, Be it Obama or some one else whoever is the president at this point of time, the Justice should be nominated now.
Yes, President Obama should nominate another Justice to the Supreme Court to replace deceased Justice Scalia. However, there will not be a nomination until the Senate returns. There are major cases to be dealt with, and the Supreme Court must have the official number of nine judges in place. The democratic process of justice must continue, dispute the fact that many citizens argue that the American people should have a say in who is nominated. Senator McConnell has stated that there should not be a new Justice elected until the next President is elected. However, that is months away.
President Obama should definitely nominate a new Supreme Court justice after the death of justice Antonin Scalia. It is his right as president of the United States to nominate a Supreme Court justice and the Senate has the right to approve this nomination. If President Obama selects a new justice, the balance of the Supreme Court will swift and become more liberal, which will have a major impact on the future of this nation for many years to come.
