6:01 am
scalia is sending shockwaves through the capital. >> efforts to control the senate bill 18replaced simply for the president leaves office. the democrats are accusing the gop of playing politics. rejoined professor kirkland does up with what this all means for politics. on the one hand we know we just lost him but on the same token you have to look at the political side now. what does his death mean? . >> it's a blow to the entire country because justice school he is one of the champions of the conservative legal movements and certainly leaves a tremendous: the court . trying to fill that vacancy, as you said, is not going to be an easy thing. there's a lot of drama and
6:02 am
opportunity to shape the court notches for a couple years but potentially decades. >> with his death that means eight justices, four nominated by republicans, four by democrats, and that is where we find ourselves in this political struggle on both sides of the aisle. >> that's right, not just four republicans are the record because two republican nominees are more moderate individualal roberts and kennedy. scalia was really the cornerstone of three conservative justices. if the president has an opportunity to make a nomination that is confirmed, you potentially switch out a very conservative justice for someone who is more moderate, potentially more liberal and then has the potential of swinging the court in a very wide direction. >> something i find interesting is
6:03 am
have put into any cases, what happens to those now? >> those votes are pretty much on because the supreme court, the only vote that matters is the one that happens last once an opinion is written. so any of the cases that were argued before justice scalia are still there and the court is still going to have to figure out how to move forward. there is potential some will be we argued next year when a replacement is picked. this potential that the court may just decide cases with eight justices. that has happened several times in the past. i guess it will depend whether justice scalia represented the sort of deciding vote in any of those cases. >> might now be seen washington fight before. we heard the whole thing about kicking the can down the road
6:04 am
can this be the case here? 's era with president obama's possible pick could be hijacked? >> is always a possible way for that to happen. but i think it's important to recognize we have had vacancies in election years in the past. just because there is a vacancy doesn't mean that everything stops. just because it's an election year doesn't mean the government stops and shuts down . so the president has a constitutional obligation to nominate a replacement when a vacancy oakhurst, and the senate has an obligation to confirm or reject that nomination turco now whether or not politics gets in the way this year is anyone's guess and we've seen signals already that that is going to be the case. majority leader mcconnell said he's not going to bring a nomination up for a vote. senator ted cruz said he might
6:05 am
the way. but there is still this obligation for the president to make a nomination regardless of when it happened. and i think president obama is going to take that responsibility very seriously. >> thank you, kurt, so much for your insight on that. thank you for joining us and now let's send things over for a check on the weather. >> hey, savannah, we are starting off with cold temperatures through the midlands in the 30s. 32 acres, 38 salute a. cold from the very across the bishop. it feels more like 27. in orangeburg it feels like 30, 29 in saint matthews. in columbia 35 degrees, overcaststskies, wind chill at 39 . and radar shows we have a little bit of precipitation starting to develop especially in the eastern southern midlands east of csrdoba west of orangeburg.
