Congress Returns: GOP Vows A Supreme Court Fight

The Congress returns to Washington from the Easter/ Passover Vacation and a fight is brewing. The GOP is throwing down the gauntlet if President Obama insist of nominating an extreme left-wing jurist to the bench.

WASHINGTON — Republicans are promising a “whale of a fight” during the congressional election campaign if President Barack Obama picks too liberal a nominee to succeed retiring Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.

Eleven days before his 90th birthday, Stevens said Friday he would step down when the court finishes its work for the summer, in hopes that a replacement could be confirmed well before the next term begins in October.

Obama said he would quickly name a successor in the mold of Stevens, who he said was a voice for ordinary people rather than powerful interests.
