Why people hate politics and politicians
" . . .McCaskill, a Democrat up for reelection in a state Trump won by a wide margin, has not decided whether to support Gorsuch or the Democratic filibuster. But she warned blocking the current nominee could bode ill for Democrats going forward.
" 'The Gorsuch situation is really hard. There are going to be people in this room that are going to say, ‘No, no, no. You cannot vote for Gorsuch,'" McCaskill said at the fundraiser. "Let's assume for the purposes of this discussion that we turn down Gorsuch, that there are not eight Democrats that vote to confirm him and therefore there's not enough to put him on the Supreme Court. What then?"
"She went through a list of potential nominees and said Gorsuch may be Democrats' best option. The Missouri senator added that in the event Republicans choose another nominee, they would probably use the nuclear option and only need 51 votes.
" 'So they pick another one off the list and then they bring it over to the Senate and we say no, no, no, this one's worse. And there's not enough votes to confirm him. They're not going to let us do that too long before they move it to 51 votes," she said." . . .
