That said, one has to wonder: As regarding those who say that they will vote against any Trump pick for the SCOTUS, what, exactly, is their endgame?

If they were (somehow) to defeat his nomination--and that is really a longshot, in my opinion--he would just sent them another nominee from his pared-down list of three or four.

If they again defeated him (or her), the kabuki dance would continue.

Eventually, we would get to the original list of 25.

Presumably, these senators would again do their rejectionist thing.

So are they implying that for at least the next two-and-a-half years--and perhaps the next six-and-a-half years--they are prepared to leave this slot on the High Court vacant--thereby resulting in many tie (four-to-four) votes?

One has to wonder if any serious person thinks that this would be a really hunky-dory idea...
Their end-game is the same as their current game. Oppose President Trump no matter what he does.
They announced their "vote against" without knowing who that person might be. That kind of says it all.

Hah, Brett Kavanaugh, married with two daughters. Dude is surrounded at home by female influence.
Let the Democrats start attacking him.
