Four Reasons to Doubt Mitch McConnell’s Power
To use power, you must have it.On the night of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that a Trump nominee to replace Ginsburg would receive a vote on the floor of the Senate.That announcement promised a use of power without hesitation or compunction, an abrupt reversal of the supposed rule that blocked an Obama nomination nine months before the 2016 election. This supposed rule would seem much better justified in 2020 than 2016. This time, the vacancy has occurred only 46 days before an election. This time, the party of the president making the nomination seems likely to lose, not win. This time, the Senate majority to approve the nomination may lose too.But of course, the real rule in 2016 was "the good old rule ... the simple plan, that they should take who have the power, and they should keep who can." What McConnell did in 2016 was an assertion of brute power, and what he proposes in 2020 is another assertion of brute power. And so the question arises: Does McConnell in fact have the power he asserts?The answer may be no, for four reasons.Does McConnell really command a Senate majority?The polls do not favor Susan Collins, Cory Gardner, or Thom Tillis—senators from Maine, Colorado, and North Carolina up for reelection this cycle. Yet these competitors may not be ready to attend their own funerals. They may regard voting against McConnell's Court grab as a heaven-sent chance to prove their independence from an unpopular president—and to thereby save their own seats.Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has also made skeptical noises, and even Lindsey Graham of South Carolina may flinch. He faces an unexpectedly tough race this year, and he is extra-emphatically on the record vowing not to support a Supreme Court confirmation vote in the later part of a presidential year.[Read: What Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death means for America](Martha McSally of Arizona, however, is likely a safe vote for McConnell. The deadest of the Senate's dead ducks surely must be focused on retaining national Republican support for her post-Senate career. Mitt Romney of Utah is a more open question: His strong sense of fairness will push him against confirmation; his consistent support for conservative judges will pull him in favor.)McConnell cannot afford more than three defections in the face of what will certainly be united Democratic opposition to any last-minute Trump nominee.Does McConnell really have a nominee to advance?Any last-minute Trump nominee will face a gantlet of opposition in the Senate, a firestorm of opposition in the country, and probably a lifetime of suspicion from the majority of the country.Can McConnell and Trump find an appointee willing to risk all that for the chance—but not the guarantee—of a Supreme Court seat? Specifically, can they find a woman willing to do it? The optics of replacing Ginsburg with a man may be too ugly even for the Trump administration. And if they can find a woman, can they find a woman sufficiently moderate-seeming to provide cover to anxious senators? The task may prove harder than immediately assumed.Will Trump balk? Until now, judicial-nomination fights have mobilized Republicans and conservatives more than Democrats and liberals. The fight McConnell proposes may upset that pattern. Trump's hopes for reelection depend on suppressing votes and discouraging participation. The last thing he needs is a highly dramatic battle that could mobilize Democrats in states including Arizona and North Carolina—even Georgia and Texas.The smart play for Trump is to postpone the nomination to reduce the risk of Democratic mobilization, and to warn Republicans of the risks should he lose. Trump’s people do not usually execute the smart play. They are often the victims of the hyper-ideological media they consume, which deceive them about what actually is the smart play. This time, though, they may just be desperate enough to break long-standing pattern and try something different.Will the conservative legal establishment play ball?The judicial status quo enormously favors conservatives. Even should Democrats win big in November, it will take many years for them to catch up to the huge Republican lead in judicial appointments. By then, who knows, the GOP may have retaken the Senate, and of course it may well find a way to hold on in 2020.[Read: Mitch McConnell’s grand plan was obvious all along]But a last-minute overreach by McConnell could seem so illegitimate to Democrats as to justify radical countermoves should they win in November: increasing the number of appellate judges and Supreme Court justices; conceivably even opening impeachment hearings against Justice Brett Kavanaugh.McConnell may want the win badly enough to dismiss those risks. But many conservative-leaning lawyers in the country may be more cautious. And their voices will get a hearing in a contentious nomination fight—not only by the national media, but by some of the less Trump-y Republican senators. This could be enough to slow down a process that has no time to spare.*Mitch McConnell has gotten his way so often that it's hard to imagine he might ever lose. But the political balance of power is shifting this fall, and for once, McConnell may be on the wrong side of a power dynamic.theatlantic.com

A spontaneous Supreme Court vigil celebrated Justice Ginsburg’s life and legacy
The crowd at the Supreme Court mourning Ruth Bader Ginsburg after her death at 87 included men and women of all ages. | Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images Hundreds of people gathered on the building’s steps Friday night. The Supreme Court was Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s workplace and her battleground. It was where, while working as a lawyer in the 1970s, she argued six cases and won five, setting precedents that established women’s equality before the law. It was where she issued her memorable dissents during her 27-year tenure. And on Friday night, after Ginsburg died at the age of 87, it was where at least 1,000 people gathered to mourn the Supreme Court’s second female justice and to celebrate her legacy. Tasos Katopodis/Getty Images A mourner places a tribute in front of the Supreme Court to honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday night at the age of 87. The crowd, which the Washington Post reported included people of all ages, brought candles, signs, and flowers; they sang songs (“This Land Is Your Land”); they wore masks. Some waved LGBTQ pride flags. Alex Edelman/AFP via Getty Images Some of the mourners at the Supreme Court on Friday night carried candles to mark Ginsburg’s death. It was an unusual outpouring of grief for a Supreme Court justice, but Ginsburg occupied an unusual place in American culture — she was not just a hero to many liberal women (and men) for her place in history and her work on the Supreme Court bench, but something of a meme. She was, in the words of the moniker bestowed on her by Shana Knizhnik, the “Notorious RBG.” (Knizhnik, then a law student, came up with the nickname after Ginsburg read her dissent aloud in Shelby County v. Holder, the case that gutted the Voting Rights Act; it was later the title of a Ginsburg biography co-written by Knizhnik and journalist Irin Carmon.) Alex Edelman/AFP via Getty Images Tributes to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, like this one in front of a mural in Washington, DC, referenced her pop culture alter ego, the “Notorious RBG.” Her face was featured on mugs, magnets, and dishtowels, and her life story was chronicled in a documentary and a feature film. Coronavirus prevention signs in Washington, DC’s Adams Morgan neighborhood pleaded with residents to wear a mask “for RBG.” “In an era when too many American leaders treat human lives as abstractions, the fandom, even at its cheekiest, insisted on the Court’s humanity,” wrote the Atlantic’s Megan Garber. “The personal is political; the memes, like the person they celebrate, insisted that the personal is also judicial.” For Ginsburg’s mourners, her death could not have come at a worse time: in the seventh month of a pandemic that has killed nearly 200,000 Americans, and less than two months before an election that will decide the fate of a presidency she hoped to outlast. She often said that she hoped the president “after this one” would be a “fine president,” according to her New York Times obituary. Her dying wish, as told to her granddaughter, was that “I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” One mourner Friday night carried a sign that said “Honor Her Wish.” Alex Brandon/AP A group of masked mourners, some carrying signs, gathers on the steps of the Supreme Court in the hours after Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. The sign referenced Ginsburg’s dying wish: that she not be replaced on the Court until a new president has taken office. Another homemade sign read “when there are nine,” a reference to how Ginsburg answered frequent questions about when there would be “enough” women on the Supreme Court. Alex Edelman/AFP via Getty Images Some mourners at the Supreme Court honored Ginsburg’s famous quotes, including her quip about when there would be enough women on the Supreme Court: “When there are nine.” The mourners who converged on the Supreme Court Friday night came to honor Ginsburg’s legal legacy, to mourn a personal hero, and — some said — because they simply did not want to be alone in the aftermath of the news. “The question that keeps popping up in my head is, ‘Who is going to take care of us?’” one woman told the Washington Post. “It just feels like such a deep loss at this particular time. It’s a lot to put on a woman of her age to keep us safe and functioning as a constitutional democracy.” Help keep Vox free for all Millions turn to Vox each month to understand what’s happening in the news, from the coronavirus crisis to a racial reckoning to what is, quite possibly, the most consequential presidential election of our lifetimes.

Obama calls for Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s successor to be appointed by the election winner
President Barack Obama hugs Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg upon arriving in the House Chamber of the Capitol to deliver his State of the Union address. | Tom Williams/CQ Roll Call “As a relentless litigator and an incisive jurist, Justice Ginsburg helped us see that discrimination on the basis of sex isn’t about an abstract ideal of equality.” Former President Barack Obama called Ruth Bader Ginsburg a “a relentless litigator and an incisive jurist” in a statement Friday night, shortly after the 87-year-old Supreme Court justice’s death due to complications with cancer. Obama’s statement was brief, praising Ginsburg for inspiring the generations that followed her, “from the tiniest trick-or-treaters to law students burning the midnight oil to the most powerful leaders in the land.” He noted that both he and his wife, Michelle Obama, admired her and the work of her long career. While Ginsburg’s legal legacy runs deep, Obama highlighted in particular the groundbreaking work she put into establishing gender equality under the law. “Justice Ginsburg helped us see that discrimination on the basis of sex isn’t about an abstract ideal of equality; that it doesn’t only harm women; that it has real consequences for all of us. It’s about who we are — and who we can be,” Obama wrote. Obama’s words were joined by the voices of thousands praising Ginsburg’s life and legacy. Several hundred people gathered late Friday night on the steps of the Supreme Court to praise the justice known for her sometimes fiery and defiant dissents. President Donald Trump honored the late justice’s memory Friday night as well, after apparently first learning of Ginsburg’s death from reporters Friday evening following a rally in Minnesota, a moment which was caught on camera. “She was an amazing woman,” the president said after an initial look of surprise. President @realDonaldTrump on the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: "She led an amazing life...She was an amazing woman, whether you agreed or not...I am sad to hear that."#RIPRBG pic.twitter.com/VTqNfohK8X— Team Trump (Text VOTE to 88022) (@TeamTrump) September 19, 2020 The president later released a statement praising Ginsburg, saying: “Justice Ginsburg demonstrated that one can disagree without being disagreeable towards one’s colleagues or different points of view.” Statement from the President on the Passing of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg pic.twitter.com/N2YkGVWLoF— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 19, 2020 Trump’s salute could be seen as ironic given what appears to be an upcoming Senate battle over replacing Ginsburg on the court. Within hours of her death, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised that whoever Trump nominates to replace Ginsburg will see a floor vote in the Senate, regardless of Republicans arguing during Obama’s final year in office that incoming presidents ought to be allowed to nominate justices. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has also called for Republicans to follow this precedent that they created. Obama’s own election year nominee, Merrick Garland, was infamously held up by McConnell. Ginsburg’s final statement was on the topic of her legacy. Shortly before her death, she reportedly told her granddaughter Clara Spera, “My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed.” And Obama argued that this wish be honored. “A basic principle of the law — and of everyday fairness — is that we apply rules with consistency, and not based on what’s convenient or advantageous in the moment,” Obama wrote. “The rule of law, the legitimacy of our courts, the fundamental workings of our democracy all depend on that basic principle.” Trump did not mention a replacement for Ginsburg in any of his statements, but did retweet a statement from Sen. John Thune (R-SD) that said, “As Leader McConnell has said, President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the U.S. Senate.” Debate about the vote is intensifying, with congressional Democrats echoing Obama and Biden’s calls, and many Republicans arguing that Trump cannot allow an opportunity for a majority conservative court to pass by. The stakes are high, and Obama argued that is exactly why the winner of the next election must be allowed to choose the next Supreme Court justice: “The questions before the Court now and in the coming years — with decisions that will determine whether or not our economy is fair, our society is just, women are treated equally, our planet survives, and our democracy endures — are too consequential to future generations for courts to be filled through anything less than an unimpeachable process.” Help keep Vox free for all Millions turn to Vox each month to understand what’s happening in the news, from the coronavirus crisis to a racial reckoning to what is, quite possibly, the most consequential presidential election of our lifetimes.
