But you were referencing "The McConnell Rule"...That was what I was responding, too...

**** the last word and it goes blank...


Let's try again..

Most likely they both and aides spoke about her replacing him and a run in 2020.

2016 was a Presidential Election year, hence the Biden Rule. This year is NOT a Presidential Election year, therefore McConnell will not be applying the Biden rule.

I hope this simplification of the the issue makes it easier for you to comprehend. Have a great day.

.... This morning I heard New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters describe a text message he got from a Democratic political consultant who said something like, “This is really bad because the Republicans are so much better at this than we are.” Well, the reason the Republicans are better at it than the Democrats is that the Republicans have to be. Since the borking of Robert Bork, the GOP has had one trial-by-fire in the confirmation process after another, while Democratic appointees have generally had an easy time of it. The GOP has been generally bipartisan and deferential about Democratic nominees while the Democrats have been vicious and conniving, operating on the assumption that they have some greater ownership of the Supreme Court. That builds battle scars and operational experience that comes in handy down the road.....

The Democrats (Progressives) have to be hard liners when it comes to the judiciary. That is where they get their policies enacted due to losing at the ballet box. Their policies are generally shot down by the voting public when placed on a ballot, so they resort to the courts and activist judges to enforce their polices. This is why Obama worked furiously to pact the lower courts with judges that would ignore the Constitution and base their decisions on things like Empathy.

And yes, the Republicans seem to be much more willing to vote for confirmation for nominees put forth by Dem Presidents. Is this because some of those in the Senate that claim to be Republicans are actually progressives? In the case of John McCain, Jeff Flake, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, that is most likely a yes.

Back to the subject at hand, I don't think Cindy McCain is qualified to be a Senator. I don't think Megan McCain is qualified to be a Senator. Both are nice intelligent ladies. Both have been in the political machinery for years. But I doubt either is the best choice for the State. Governor Ducy is being polite and, I'm guessing, betting on a refusal.

Ducy is pro Trump. No one in the McCain family is likely to be so. And the last thing our nation needs now is another McCain mutiny over the personal animosity between the two men. The Governor should choose for what he thinks is best for the State of Arizona, and the Republic.

And THAT is why so many lower court judges are so eager to place impediments before anything Trump does. In truth, it is not in their job description to do so.

Sans legitimate cause for their actions, the higher courts continually repeal their orders.

Sounds like she is more qualified than the reality star we have as president.
