it's a liberal court. if the republicans do, it's a conservative court. >> it affects all levels of government. rare situation. george, it's great to have you here in studio. as we look at the man and his three-decade legacy, you're lookinggt a live pictcte outside the supreme court. where flags are flying at half staff, as they are in the rest of the country. our team coverage begins with jiavila in shafter, texas. hi, jim. >> reporter: good morning, paula paula. justice scalia had at least two ssions in life. he loved the law and he loved to hunt. this weekend, he came out to west texas and the open spaces at a ranch resort owned by a texas billionaire to shoot some quail. he never made it out on the range. this morning, the body of supreme court justice antonin scalia arriving in el paso. officicis telling abc news the 79-year-old legal icon died saturday in his sleep from
>> antonin "nino" scalia was a larger than life presence on the bench. a brilliant legal mind. with an energetic style. incisiveveit. and colorful opinions. >> reporter: he was on a hunting krip at cibolo creek ranch in texas. he persuaded elena kagan to shoot skeet. law enforcement sources saying he left dinner early and went to his room, feeling ill. when he didn't arrive to breakfast saturday morning, a person associated with the ranch went to check on him. he was found in his room, unresponsive. the catholic diocese of el paso administering his last rites at the ranch. a hearseehen carrying his body towards el paso. condolences pouring in from former presidents, current candidates, and government officials. house speaker paul ryan saying i, learned so much from this man. i knew him. i respected him. i looked up to him. we all did.
been performed. in fact, a local justice of the peace pronounced the justice deadadver the phone and thth pcame out to the ranch to say there was no foul play involved and turned the body over to the fbi is also investigating. >> okay, jim. thank you. justice scalia's opinions are legendary. sharp, elegant, funny, and sarcastic. he was a hero to conservatives. inspired a generation of legal thought. abc's terry moran has covered his tenure for so long. he joins us from mexico city. >> reporter: good morning, the supreme court had never seen anything like antonin scalia. italian-american. he was a high-voltage intellectual. who developed this great theory about the constitution and the judges in our system. through the force of his intellect. his flair as a ariter and his appetite for argument, he made those ideas count in the country. and in the court.
he was a happy warrior. i've been thininng, it's just impossible to imagine that great courtroom without him in it. >> i, antonin scalia do solemnly swear. >> i antonin scalia do solemnly swear. >> reporter: justice antonin scalia was an american original. a towering icon of conservative juris prudence. a man who loved his life in the law. >> i like figuring out the right answer to legal questions, believe it or not. >> reporter: nino scalia, as he was known to friends, served three decades on the supreme court. and in those year, hee became a pivotal figure. he was a justice who did more than hand down rulings. he wanted to change the law itself and the court. through his spirited and forceful advocacy of what he called textualism. his strict interpretation of the nstitution. he was unafraid to take a stand and seemingly incapable of backing down. famously lashing out at critics
versus gore election dispute. >> i and my court owe no apology whatever for bush versus gore. we did the right thing so -- so there. get over it, it's so old by now. >> reporter: it was that brashness which cemented the court's first italian american justice in the public's mind. a vivid writer, his opinions became famous for their caustic, take no prisoners style. he called the majority's reasoning in a 2013 defense of marriage act case legalistic argle-bargle. andlammed the court's decision on the affordable care act as jiggery-pokery. >> how can the government -- that is gobbledygook. >> reporter: in cases big and small, his wit lashed out in legal arguments. he loved to get a laugh. >> okay, you can't refuse your money or your life. but your life or your wife's? i could refuse that one. >> reporter: but his quick tongue landed him in trouble at times. in 2015, scalia's
>> you know, when you take more, the number of blacks really competent blacks admitted to lesser schools, turns out to be less. >> reporter: but his friends and his colleagues say behind the combative mind and fiery words was a warm man and a close friend. forging an unlikely bond with liberal justice ruth bader ginsburg. fellow new yorkers candid about their friendship, despite fiercely opposing political views. >> we agree on a whole lot of stuff. we do. ruth is really bad only on the knee-jerk stuff.f. [ laughter ] she is -- >> reporter: antonin scalia grew up in queens, new york. attending xavier high school in manhattan before georgetown and harvard law school, where he met his s fe maureen. >> maureen is an extraordinary woman. without whom i wouldn't be here. >> reporter: his wife and his family, they built together, as much a part of his life and legacy as the court and country he served. that seat on the supreme court, something he always cherished.
about stepping down, saying there was only one thing that could make him walk away. >> i will certainly retire at the time where i perceive that i am not as good as i us to be. that i've -- i've lost a step. >> reporter: for many, he never did. love him or loathe him, and americans did both, he was the kind of man to inspire those feelings. scalia must be counted as one of the most important supreme court justices in american history. >> and terry, when you go back through his opinions, where is the most sweeping victory? and the most searing defeat? >> reporter: you know, probably his biggest victory was on the second amendment. he campaigned for years. wrote the opinion that held that the second amendment is the individual right. the right to bear arms. that was in keeping with his notion that the federal government's power should be limited. some things are left to o ates, localities, and citizens.
question, abortion. he desperately wanted to overturn roe versus wade. he was never able to. >> okay, terry moran, thanks very much. the battle now to who comes next. it's monumental. president obama says he'll make a successor. the senate says they won't let it happen. the battle lines drawn immediately. >> reporter: even before immediately, if that's possible, george. because ted cruz put out a statement that said the next president should be the one that replaces scalia before the supreme court officially confirmed that scalia was dead. mitch mcconnell put out a statement saying much the same thing, less than an hour after the court made the statement. these battle lines were drawn immediately. and in the debate last night, with the republican presidential candidates, all six of them agreed, saying that there is no
allowed to name the replacement for justice scalia. president obama has made it perfectly clear he intends to move forward. the top of the list is sri srinivasan. he's someone the republicans like quite a bit. he's a former clerk to justice sandraay o'connor. in his current post on the d.c. court of appeals, he was con foirmed 97-0. not a single republican vote against him. george? >> this debate has just begun. >> it has. let's bring in abc news chief legal analyst dan abrams. good morning. >> good morning. >> a lot of names being floated as potential nominees by the president. these are people that have been confirmed by the united states senate. your argument is that this is different. >> there's a short list. a lot of them are court of
who have gone through this process. they've gone to the senate. they've been confirmed. some people will say, wait a second. this person or that person was confirmed with relatively little opposition. the rules are different. everything has changed n n. two reasons. number one, the presidential campaign. number two you're talking about justice scalia. justice scalia's memory for conservatives is so important that this time, anything that happened in the past is not particularly relevant to what is gogog to happen now. point being, it's going to be nearly impossible for president obama to get through the senate almost anyone who has been on his short list. >> how does the eourt function with only eight justices? can they actually move forward on a lot of the cases in front f them, including cases on the union and abortion? >> yeah, and there are 4 to 4 decisions. the court often divided 5-4.
see 4-4. what does that mean practically? effectively nfirmed. so w wtever the lower court decided previously stands. but, the supreme court then is not setting any precedent. meaning you can't cite that opinion in the future to say, a-ha, but the supreme court previously ruled x, y, or z. it remains effectively a local definitive opinion from the supreme court. the possibility of creating quite a mess for the court system. >> is there a precedent for the court having to muddle through down one justice? >> yeah. justices do recuse themselves in certain cases. they say, for example, relatively new to the court. i was involved in that case as a solicitor general or some other way. so i can't be involved. the supreme court does sometimes have 4 to 4 rulings.
the idea that you're talking a year, 18 months, of 4-4 decisions by a divided court is completely unprecedented. >> thank you, dan. >> he served for 30 years on the supreme court. some are calling him the most influential justice in recent memory. so for more on his legal legacy, we want to bring in veteran washington observer, cokie roberts, who join us us in pawley's island, south carolina. thank you for joining us this morning. >> hi, paula. good to be with you. >> first and foremost, how do you think justice scalia would want to be remembered? he had a legacy of being a a constitutional purist. >> i think that is exactly how he would like to be remembered. as someone who cared desperately about the constitution and followed it to the letter by his lights. and did it with great intellect and some humor and sometimes, scathingly. and, in ways that really could take down the lawyers in the case or his colleagues on the court.
was incredibly well liked. all right, cokie. thank you. i know you were up le for the debate last night. thank you for joining us early this morning. >> paula and cokie, thank you both. speaking of the debate, that scalia news played a prominent role in the debate overnight. this debate quickly got nasty. >> right after the moment of silence for justice scalia. incredibly feisty. i don't think i have heard the word liar used so much in a single debate. let's go to tom llllas for more. >> reporter: that came from donald trump. on the defense all night. some of his biggest battles yet exploding on the debate stage. it shows you how many of the gop candidates want to put an end to the trump campaign. that wild gop debate started peaceful and respectful. the passing of antonin scalia
alalagreeing that president obama shouldn't be the one to fill scalia's spot on the court. >> he would ram down our throat a liberal justice. >> we're not going to give up the u.s. supreme court for a generation by allowing barack obama to make one more liberal appointee. >> reporter: then the real fight started. >> jeb is so wrong. jeb is absolutely so -- [ crowd booing ] >> reporter: donald trump booed loudly by the crowd during an openish -- epic clash with jeb bush about the bush family legacy. >> while donald trump was building a reality tv show, my brother was building a security apparatus to keep us safe. and i'm proud of what he did. and he's h had the gall to go after -- >> the world trade center came down -- >> reporter: and in a rare move, marco rubio coming to jeb's defense. >> the world trade center came down because bill clinton didn't kill osama bin laden when he had the chance to kill him. >> reporter: trump tangling with
running robocalls telling voters the front-runner wouldn't be on the ballot in south carolina. >> that's a matter of principle. >> you're the single biggest liar. you're probably worse than jeb bush. you are the single biggest liar. this guy lied. let me tell you. he lied about ben carsrs when he took votes away from ben carson in iowa. and he just continues. >> reporter: dr. ben carson, refusing to join in on the exchanges. >> is that really what you want? what we just saw? i don't think so. >> reporter: and john kasich predicting who will ultimately gain from these brutal attacks. >> i think we're fixing to lose the election to hillary clinton if we don't stop this. >> reporter: now south carolina's republican primary is next saturday. this next week may be the most important for jeb bush. he's looking to revive his campaign. he'll get help from president george w. bush tomorrow on the he'll likelylyace opposition from trump. who all week, not only does not ferkt, he does not forgive.
shake hands yesterday. >> they wept -- went at it so fiercely last night. last night, donald trump really for the first time in a debate, getting it from jeb bush and all sides. >> senator ted cruz, marco rubio. he was man on an island last night. a lot of conservative writers think last night republicans were trying to take trump out. >> thank you, tom llamas. >> he was getting it from the audience, too. the gloves came off and for more on the dedete, weeant to bring in abc news analyst matt dowd for his take. matt, first of all, as we just said, things got extremely ugly. there was a whole loof name-calling. are the attacks helping the candidates? or are they doing irreparable damage to the gop brand? >> demolition derby is entertaining to watch. but after the derby is over, every car is damaged. think republicans are fast approaing a time of how personal and how visceral and how much name-calling there is that this is not going to do anybody any good in the course of this. they all may survive.
be a benefit going into a general election. >> and matt, south carolina has the history of picking the nominee.e. last time was the exception. trump taking a chance last night by going after the bush family in south carolina. which is, you know, that family is loved in that state. >> well, as you know, george w. bush won the state after losing badly in new hampshire in 2000. that was basically his comeback. it put him back on the path to win the general election. they're well-loved there. what would be interesting to me. donald trump attacked george w. bush last night. he attacked lindsey graham, a u.s. senator from south carolina. he got booed by the audience. if donald trump wins south carolina after all that, i think it's very difficult to stop him. if he's able to win south carolina in the midst of all that. >> right. but this is a guy who has shown over andver again that the normal rules of politics don't apply to him. that said, is there anybodyou jeb bush? marco rubio? kasich? >> well, i think, to me, i had
were winners in the course of it. i think john kasich didi he sort of tried to stay out of the fight. tried to stay above it all. and i think he's gotten a lift from his second place finish in w hampshire. i thought he did well. i thought marco rubio, after his last awful debate performance, where he got attacked by chris christie, i thought he came back and did well. i thought jeb did fine. if i were picking two people i thoughghwon, it would be john sich and marco rubioio >> thank you, matt. we want to remind you george has a big show this morning on "this week ts" with guests marco rubio and john kasich. and on the democratic side texas big winner in the new hampshire primary, bernie sanderer great to have e u in studio. a huge story. >> evevebody wanted to come on overnight. donald trump is going to join us. ted cruz is going to join us. this issue is so huge. all the candidates want to weigh in. >> it's an interesting time. george,, thank you. go get ready for the show.
we appreciate it. >> sure. we want to turn to the dangerous cold in much of america. and indra petersons is on the story from a frigid central park. good morning to you. >> good morning, you know, since i cover weather a lot, i like to think i'm tougher than you guys. but when it's this cold, it's game over. outright dangerous. right now, central park, you can see. currently 0 degrees. the actual low. not that cold since 1994. binghamton, the actual temperature, 18 below. ties for the second all-ti coldest ever. so you're talking about very cold temperatures out here. let's look at how many of you are affected. the mid-atlantic to the northeast. these temperatures are bitter cold. once you add in chat wind chilla winter weather advisory remains in effect for all of the tv9 viewing area until 6 pm this evening. light snow will fall through the morning hoururand will likely become moderate at times. occasionally, during moderate
