The President has the right, under the constitution, to nominate A candidate to the Supreme Court whenever there is a vacancy. Those who wish to deny him that right are doing so for political reasons only. When will the American people start holding their elected officials accountable for what they do. When you elect a senator or representative to congress, they are supposed to do what is right for the country and not the party, whether democrat or republican. It has become much too prevalent that the country and its people are tossed aside for political parties. Any politician who places party before country should be voted out of office. Let the President do his job!!!!!!!!
