Didn’t always agree with her but have to respect her for all she endured and fought for. She was a hero to many.

Cruz hasn't been a Judge but he did clerk for the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals and for Chief Justice Rehnquist and was Solicitor General of Texas.

As for the part about postponing any nomination hearings, if McConnell were to follow his own precedent, that would happen. In reality, it won't and I have mixed feelings about it. On one hand I believe the Supreme Court is too vital to leave an open vacancy for too long because of the risk of having 4-4 decisions on important cases. On the other hand, a Supreme Court vacancy is too important to rush a nomination.

PVT Joshua Blotzer - Trump has a list of folks he supposedly had vetted. He can nominate but I don't see anyone getting through before the election

Lt Col Charlie Brown - I'm not so skeptical on that part. McConnell has already promised to fill the vacancy. Trump has indicated he will be making a quick nomination. I absolutely believe the vacancy will be filled before the election or in the Lame Duck period. Especially if it looks like the Republicans will lose either the Senate or the White House. And there's nothing the Democrats can do about it.

Of course the Dems will run interference.
