Gentlemen you swore an oath to uphold the Constitution. This is your duty as defined by the Constitution to hold hearings on the President's nominee. So do it. The anger you see by the voters is a direct result of these partisan politics that have destroyed Congress' functionality. You need to end them as soon as possible. Failing to even hold hearings will show to the voters that you hold your Party 's politics above your oath to the people. There is no way I would vote for a person like that.
