Instead of doing what fire marshalls do.

Though it will still be a very difficult situation.

First, Trump would have to voluntarily exit the race. Officials say there is no mechanism for forcing him to withdraw his nomination.

Then it would be up to the 168 members of the Republican National Committee to choose a successor, though the process is complicated.

One Republican legal expert has advised party officials that, for practical reasons, Trump would have to drop out by early September to give the party enough time to choose his replacement and get the next nominee's name on the ballot in enough states to win.
One of the more important giveaways from that article is that the new nominee has to be on the ballot in enough states to win. If Trump drops out too late his name will still be on the ballot in many states and cannot be removed. Furthermore, it will then not be possible to have a replacement be named on the ballot.

So what do we think will happen with the SC Justice nominee, Garland?

Seeing that Clinton will most likely win in November (barring health or legal issues), do the GOP rush to nominate Garland who's a bit more moderate than who Clinton would nominate?

Or does Obama pull Garland nomination after November, telling the GOP they were right, let's let the next President decide?

If you were being sarcastic, or making fun of people who actually ask that question, then i apologize. If you were actually wondering why she got paid so much, then my comment stands.

Yes. Look how much he got paid. Look how much they got paid. Look how much it got paid. Hillary Clinton is a female. The word "she" applies in this scenario.

There's nothing even remotely sexist there. I didn't *ask* a question and I wasn't being sarcastic. Let's pretend you make $150,000 a year. Of course you care about $10,000, it's not a negligible amount. I would care. Any of us would care. $200,000 isn't a negligible amount to Hillary Clinton, annually. Of course she listens to each group who pays her, in some regard.

There's nothing sexist about this at all. It has nothing to do with Clinton's gender. Nothing you quoted from me indicates I said anything like "Clinton is an overpaid woman" or some stupid shit. Yet that's how you responded to me. The only relevance Clinton had in my posts was circumstantial. She was the subject of a discussion when I was making a general point (to Dave) about how people who get paid lots of money still care about where their money comes from -- especially when you're in the Clinton cash range as a privately contracted individual.

If Obama doesn't pull Garland, he's a fucking idiot. You can bet that the GOP will rush to confirm him after the election if he's still on the table...

That's why I really can't stand the stupid campaign for people to try and call their representatives and ask for Garland's confirmation...that will just give more ammo for the GOP to use after the election. Clinton is going to win, let's enjoy her pick and not some needless moderate that's only been brought forward as a political tool.

Is McConnell doing this because he genuinely thought the Republican nominee would win? Even when it became clear who the nominee was going to be? Or is he doing it because he can't stand Obama? Did he really not think that Clinton had a chance, and would appoint someone even more "liberal"?

Clearly, I haven't read up on any of this.

I feel Obama has been so far ahead of the GOP it's not even fair.

They figured they would win, obviously.

It will be great when we get another ten years or so out and Republicans finally accept that the country has shifted strongly to the other side...then there won't be posturing to win Presidential elections, etc.

So Drumpf is speaking in Green Bay on Friday and I'm thinking about going just as a social experiment.

What's funny is that basically all GOP senators and the governor (Fuck Scott Walker) are not showing up. Must be in response to Drumpf being a dick to Paul Ryan.

considering he has over 50% approval ratings, despite being very deep in his second term, i'd tend to agree.

The GOP seems to only react, there's no vision of what's ahead by their actions.

Obama played the SC nomination beautifully. He put up a guy highly regarded by both sides, who even leans more to the center-right. GOP has doubled down on their stupidity, and now it's looking like they'll end up having to vote in a much more liberal/progressive candidate.

Their inability to see further than their nose down the road is one of the many reasons they have a dysfunctional sociopath at the top of their ticket.

It's difficult to have sympathy for Ryan.

Even with the Trump primary wins starting?

Well, this is the same party that's tried to repeal Obamacare hundreds of times, and that's pretty much it.

He'd probably hate the fact that he wouldn't even get a plate for his food!

Maybe I'm going to jump back on the "He's a Clinton plant..." conspiracy.....

His campaign is imploding.
