Waiting For a Supreme Court Nominee

Should President Obama nominate someone for the vacancy on the Supreme Court? Senator John Cornyn continues to say no, with all signs pointing to a nomination coming soon.

“We made the decision to let the voters make that decision and have a voice in the selection process. Are we going to have a change in the ideological balance of the court for another generation? Or are we going to let the American people have a voice into what that direction should be?”

Senator Cornyn says the last time a President made a decision on a Supreme Court nominee this late in a term was Grover Cleveland in 1888. The Senator continues to say the next American President should make that nomination.
