opposites on the bench. best buddies in life. >> we agree on a whole lot of stuff. we do. >> ruth is really bad only on the knee-jerk stuff. she's -- >> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." the stars and stripes fly at half-stata at the supreme court. a quiet memorial to justice antonin scalia, a sharp contrast to the coming political battle. scalia died apparently in his sleep saturday at a secluded resort in west texas. he would have been 80 next month. his doors confirmed he had`a history of heart trouble. in three decades on the court, he was a augnacious champion of conservative thought. a team of correspondents covering this. first jan crawford on the impact of scalia's death. >> reporter: when the justices return to the bench next week it
4:01 am
eight, they will serve without juice scalia. >> i antonin scalia -- >> for 30 years the court's most forceful voice. his sudden death will have immediate impact on the current term full of controversial cases, regulation of abortion clinics, a challenge to obamacare. affirmative action in college admissions and presidential power on immigration. with scalia, the court had a narrow conservative majority. now, it is a court on pause. many of those cases will end up in a 4-4 tie. keeping the lower court ruling in place and setting no nationwide precedent. but his passing will affect the institution far beyond one term. he was one of nine justices but his impact on the court and the law was far greater than a single vote. his opinions were must-reads for clear, colorful writing, and dissent, calling decision upholding part oobamacare, pure apple sauce. his philosophy that judges should interuret the
4:02 am
understood defefed the conservative legal movement. >> i think it is up to the judge to say what the constitution provided even if what it provided is not the best answer. even if you think it should be amended. if that's what it says that's what it says. >> hhas done so much to set the terms of how the court approaches issues. >> reporter: paul clement clerked for scalia, he has argued 80 cases before the court and said scalia's lively often sharp questions forever changed the court's dynamics on the bench. >> his very first case he started asking lots and lots of questions. even some of the justices who had been there for years, they looked and said, "well, we are not going to let the n n guy ask all the questions." it fundamentally changed the nature of arguing before the supreme court. >> reporter: now the court has seseral big arguments ononhe
4:03 am
case, immigration case, and it could reschedule some cases to be argued next term. scott, it is unclear whether the court t that point. us tonight. jan, thank you. the delay that jan just mentioned is exactly what the senate republican leadership has insisting the nomination be postponed for nearly a year. when a new president is in office. but today, president obama was discussing privately who will be his next pick. it would be his third. margaret brennan is with mr. obama at a soueast asian summit meeting he is hosting in rancho mirage, california. >> reporter: mr. obaba could make h h pick as soon as nexex week. but election year politics in an already divided washington make his decision complicated.% the president will need at least 14 republican senators to move the process forward. to help win some republican backing, mr. obama could choose
4:04 am
senate approval. some names thahafit that bill -- 63-year-old merrit garland, 48-year-old also sits on the court, he would be the first indian-american justice, and 51-year-old former public defender gene kelly, harvard law class made it of the president. he could make a bold choice like attorney general loretta lynch. who had to wait more than 160 days before she was confirmed for her current position.. the administration argues that history is on its side. and points to the confirmation of justice anthony kennedy as an example. nominated by president reagan, kennedy was confirmed during the 1988 election year by a democratic senate. of course, in that case, it took three tries before the president's pick actually won confirmation. scott, this time the white house is already calling democrats and republicans in congress to try to grease the wheels for their nominee. >> margaret, thank you very
4:05 am
margaret mentioned the history. in fact it would be rare for the senate to turn the president down in an election year. in the 20th century, the senat voted on seven supreme court nominees during election years. and it approved all but one. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. >> i intend to make 2016 a referendum on the u.s. supreme court. >> reporter: it took roughlyly three hours for scalia's passing to become a major campaigner to. >> the president under our constitution has a duty to send forth a name to be considered by the senate. and the senate has a duty to consider that. >> reporter: on capitol hill, republicans on the pivotal senate judiciary committee, from ted cruz to lindsay graham vowed to block virtually any nominee calling the president a lame-duck. >> this will probably be left up to the next president. >> reporter: democrats argued
4:06 am
a year left in his term. >> when you go off the bat, i don't care who he nominates. schumer fefe differently in the final year of president george w. bush's term when he argued democrats should block bush nominees because "the supreme court was already dangerously out of balance." there isn't much preredent for a fight like this. congress has never taken more than 125 days to vote on a supreme court nominee. but legal scholar, jonathan turley said this time could be different. >> conservatives clearly despise president obama and they revere justice scalia. it is a bad mix. so you will have a battle royale, no matter who is appointed. >> reporter: some republicans have told me they would be open to considering a "consensus choice." but they haven't been able to give me any names of who migig fit the description. scott, because even a moderate
