Supreme Court

Judge Pick Tuesday?

Might President Obama make his first nomination to the Supreme Court as soon as Tuesday? “Those involved with Obama’s decision” say it could come as soon as then, according to the Associated Press. Obama has interviewed two candidates for the job, but Republicans are keeping the option of a filibuster open, with Democratic Senator Ben Nelson threatening to join their opposition. "We don't want to have to read judges' minds. So I think that's the test—will they be an activist or not?" Nelson said. "I would hope that there wouldn't be any circumstances that would be so extreme with any of the president's nominees that the other side would feel the need to filibuster or that I might feel the need to filibuster in a case of extraordinary circumstances."
