Just hope the democrats grow a spine and don't let the republicans screw them out of a supreme court seat 6 months from an election but then put up their own 1 and a half months from an election.

They are the minority in the Senate then and now. There's literally nothing to be done unles enough Repubs join them to leave the Senate without the required quorum.

Anyway, I don't think the seat will be filled before the lame duck period, in an atempt to electorally protect endangered Repub senators.

Ah, I hadn't read into it and was hopeful that the system required both houses of congress. Sigh. Well here's hoping they can't get somethin together before the election.
