Today, President Obama announced his nomination to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
But this has never been about who the nominee is.
This is about a basic principle:
Under our Constitution, the president has every right to nominate whoever he wants to.
But the Senate—which is a co-equal branch of government—has every right not to act on that nomination.
This is going to have to go to the American people in 2016.
