♪ prime court justice antonin scalia dead today at the age of 79. the longest serving member on the current high court was found dead of natural causes saturday morning in west texas. >> fox's joel waldman has more right now from washington. >> reporter: news of antonin scalias' death coming in the midst of a pivotal presidential election where control of the court has been a hot topic.
7:12 am
sending shop waves throughout the political world. >> reaction to the news of justice antonin scalia's death came swiftly from across the political spectrum. >> he no doubt be remembered as one of the most consequential judges and think kearse to serve on the supreme court. >> reporter: the flags outside the supreme court lowered to half staff tributes poured in from both republicans and democrats. many of whom praised scalia's legal mind even when they did not necessarily agree with his opinions. >> an original in many ways not just legal minded but just an original guy really nice. ruth bader ginsberg was his bev friend. >> reporter: appointed in 1986 by president reagan scalia was the first italian-american justice to sit on the court and staunch conservative voice on the bench. he rode the second opinion in major cases in major years including president obama's signature legislation the affordable care act. his death touching off a political fire storm chance for
7:13 am
the president to appoint third supreme court justice during his time in office. that was surely tip the scale of the court in favor of the liberal leading justices. >> republicans holding majority in the senate will likely try to delay a new supreme court justice nominee until after the november general election. a move that certainly get push back from the democrats. in washington, joel waldman, fox news. thanks so much, joel. so what does scalia passing mean for the supreme court and for the presidential campaign? joining us this professor david barrett from villanova university and professor bill rosenberg from drexel university. good morning, gentlemen. >> good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with you, professor barrett. the immediate impact, i mean obviously you have now a four-four split. what does that mean for going forward in the supreme court? >> well, i think it means a lot of the decisions are not going to be handed down, um, this somewhat unchartered waters for
7:14 am
the chief justice. there's a lot of talk about how, you know, maybe the republicans seem to be saying that president obama should not proceed with the new appointment to the court and that's politically understandable but also creates a deadlock supreme court awful lot of ways. this was an eloquent voice. a lot of five-four decisions one way or the other but scalia was on the one side which is the conservative side. so there's now this potential for deadlocked supreme court and they're always very important decisions that lie ahead. it's a very historically interesting situation. >> professor rosenberg, chiming in on that, the whole situation about a deadlocked supreme court some saying we shall not go forward with an appointment right now. can the court even function this way? >> the court can function. the court has nine members normally but there are times in which there are less than nine people participating. i think one of the things that's important to think about with
7:15 am
this controversy that's sprung up immediately after the death of scalia is whether or not president obama is going to have the right to actually place another person on the supreme court mitch mcconnell came out immediately and said no. i think that that really starts a fire storm. you have to realize other presidents have put people in even during their period, kennedy. i think the other thing that's important to recognize is that thurgood marshall when he died, he was the lion of the left. he was replaced by a very strange conservative clarence thomas which really changed the complexion of the court also. this argument about conservati conservatives wanting to save it as a conservative spot real until justified. >> it came up obviously in discussion witness candidates donald trump, governor kasich, they weighed in on this. let's hear what they had to say. >> i think he's going to do it whether i'm okay with it or not. i think it's up to mitch mcconnell and everybody else to
7:16 am
stipulate. it's called delay, delay, delay i wish the president would think about not nominating somebody. if you were to nominate somebody, let's have him pick somebody that is going to have new money muss approval and widespread approval across the country this could happen without a lot of recrimination. i don't think that's going to happen. >> i don't think ever in history unanimous approval across the country. professor barrett, what do you think about the candidates saying purposely delay, delay, delay? and putting that out there for public reaction. >> well, it will be interesting to see how the public does respond to that. you know, president obama has just a few weeks short of a whole year left in office so the idea that he should not offer an appointment which seems to be the preference there from the candidates strikes me as unrealistic so i question how politically feasible that's going to be, and if there is delay, delay, delay by senate
7:17 am
republicans, it seems to me that then becomes an issue in the general election and may be not in offer if aable way for the republicans. >> what type of person should replace him? we'll get your response to this. but first justice scalia had a chance to weigh in on this several years ago who he would want to replace him. let's seaway said. >> i would not like to be replaced by someone who immediately sets about undoing everything that i've tried to do for 25 years, 26 years. sure. i mean i shouldn't have to tell you that. unless you think i'm a fool. >> professor rosenberg you started talking about this. should there be any consideration into the person they're replacing? he said don't undo what i've already done. does that even need to be taken into consideration by whoever ends up appointing the next justice? >> i think that's just in general public. definitely into the play here. as i mentioned a few minutes ago, when thurgood marshall was replaced clarence thomas took his spot and i think you
7:18 am
couldn't find two die met tree opposed individuals in terms of ideological perspectives. it's really nice that clarence -- that scalia would like to maintain his legacy with another seat. but, you know, he had his chan chance. did he his service and now president obama has the opportunity constitutionally to nominate whoever he chooses and it's the role of the senate not to delay, delay, delay, but rather to confirm or not confi confirm. >> professor barrett, professor rosenberg thanks for spending time with us this morning. >> thank you. >> my pleasure. it will be interesting to see how we proceed. i feel like the day after someone passes on, we should end that segment with condolences to his family may he rest in peace and then we'll get to the political side of it. now let's take a live look outside. we take look at the weather today. this is absecon, new jersey. a frigid start to the day valentine's day. dave warren is it going to warm up any? >> yes, it will warm up just a

7:33 am
to try to get through all of this and break it down for us joining us by skype this morning attorney and fox 29 legal analyst ken rothweiler g morning, sir. >> good morning, bill. >> so, ken, they're doing this again. so the appeal is that there was in fact this agreement that there was a no prosecution that it wasn't in writing. what's different in the appeal than was originally ruled on? >> well, nothing really although they do have to make some different legal arguments. now they're appealing this to the superior court and bill you can expect this. i think bill cosby team will pull out all the legal maneuvers to try to prevent him from being prosecuted. so what they're doing is they're appealing two thing actually. their appealing judge o'neill's dismissal of their motion and they're also appealing his failure to disqualify the da's office kevin steele who ran against bruce castor. so they're doing it on two grounds, and we'll see whether the superior court even entertains the appeal because
7:34 am
there's some argument that it's not timely that this appeal is more appropriate at the end of the case than it is now. >> help me understand. using your legal mind for those of us obviously who are not attorneys, they're appealing essentially because they didn't like the original ruling? >> this is supposed to be something violation there was a procedural issue nothing -- you can appeal just saying i don't like that? >> well, no, you can't. but you're right. they don't like the decision. they are making -- they are basing it on a legal basis. legal basis one of the legal basis it violates due process bill cosby's due process rights and some other legal things they're saying as well. but that's basically what they're trying to do is have the superior court take another look at the ruling by judge o'neill and see whether they'll overturn that ruling and therefore if they did that, there would be no criminal case going forward and bill cosby would not be criminally prosecuted. >> water cooler talk for a second.
7:35 am
at the risk of sounding perhaps a little bid morbid mr. cosby is 78 years old. water cooler talk attorneys pulling out every stop, every appeal throwing everything out there so if you can't win, you stall and you've got a 78-year-old client. can you make this drag on for years? any truth to that? >> i don't think you can make it drag on for years, but you're right, that's exactly what the goal is here to delay, delay, delay, because he's not in jail right now. he's not serving any time, you know, behind bars so the longer they delay the better it is for bill cosby. you're right. he's 78 years old. no one knows how long someone is going to live. no one expected justice scalia to die at 79 years old. so delay, delay, delay works for bill cosby. >> and always a pleasure to speak to you. my last question when do we get the invite to that cabin you seem to be chilling in. (laughter). >> every weekend i'm doing it right here from my cabin up in the woods. you're invited any time. bill, would love to have you. >> we got witnesses that you said that.

made from the kakao bean where the healthy stuff is grown is full of antioxidants got something fee yo bromide, flavonoids all those things, improve blood flow, lower blood pressure, they lower your risk of heart disease. chocolates good for brain function. what more could you ask for? here's the thing. make sure you're eating the right chocolate and it has to be dark for it to be heart healthy and all those other things, too. here's one example. what you do you look for the percentage of cocoa this one has 88% cocoa on it. which is pretty high. that means it's pretty good for you. dark chocolate by definition has to be at least 35% cocoa. but to get a real health benefit from it, you want it to be about 70%. i know that's a lot of numbers much 70% at least and the higher the better. problem for some people it's a little bit bitter. it's a little tough to eat sometimes if you're used to eating, you know, something like the cadbury milk chocolate. when you compare the two, alex,
8:17 am
here's the big thing. milk chocolate while it tastes delicious, when you add mill tock chocolate it sort of negates the health full benefits of those antioxidants you're not going to get any real heart healthy benefit out of eating your milk chocolate. when, f you're doing your own research look at the label. you want the first ingredient to be bittersweet chocolate that's what it is on this one. versus, you know, sugar, oils, fats, that sort of thing which is what you'll get on other chocolate bars. white chocolate and i know we love our hershey's just remember white chocolate is -- doesn't have any cacao in it this is delicious you're not getting that cocoa bean in there which is where we get all of our antioxidants. so there you go. it needs to dark to be considered really healthy. it is interesting alex that chocolate has more antioxidants than black tea, green tea, talk about good green tea is for you. >> i love granny tea or red wi
