Brad Hays: An Opportunity For Merit

Feb 26, 2016

By now, the politics of selecting the next Supreme Court justice have become clear.  President Obama has pledged to fulfill his constitutional responsibility by nominating someone to fill the seat opened by Justice Antonin Scalia's death.  Republicans in the Senate have pledged to block any such nomination.  In short, the crisis of federal judicial selection that has plagued lower court nominations for decades is now prominently on display and, regrettably, promises more of what we have come to expect in our politics: partisanship and gridlock.  But, crisis, they say, creates opportunity and this moment creates an opportunity for more meritorious politics.
