Expect to see Democrats at their very worse with Supreme Court confirmation to replace Kennedy

Washington Post:
Departure likely to trigger bitter showdown over Trump’s selection of replacement

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, 81, has been the court’s most important member for more than a decade, casting the deciding vote on the court’s controversial Citizens United campaign finance decision, the constitutional right to same-sex marriage and the continued viability of affirmative action.
No matter who Trump nominates I expect to see Democrats actually worse than when they wrongly stopped the Bork nomination under President Reagan.  They view the seat as critical to clinging to the evils of liberalism which has animated their use of the Court over the last 60 years.   They see the Court as a means to impose policies they could not get support for at the ballot box.
