This is a shock. My condolences go out to his family.

I guess the Obama administration will be in a rush to replace him just in case a republican becomes president.

One of the titans, regardless how you view his politics.

When they keep refusing just keep repeating the mantra "Do your job."

After watching the debate I don't think there is any way they will approve anyone until the next president takes office. Unless he nominates someone like Scalia.

When the Republicans say the next president should be the one to nominate Scalia's successor, I understand the political reasons behind it. But what practical, non-partisan justification is there to not allow the sitting president to carry out his duties? I just don't understand the rationale from a non-political perspective. If they're not even going to try to hide the politicization of the Supreme Court, then what hope is there.

Obama was elected twice. The people of the US of A spoke in that regard. He has every right, and the duty to nominate a justice.
