“Every day that passes with a Supreme Court below full strength impairs the people’s business in that crucially important body.” — Ronald Reagan

“On Feb. 3, 1988, McConnell and literally every other GOP senator voted to confirm Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. This was during President Ronald Reagan’s last year in the White House, and at a time when Democrats controlled the Senate. Kennedy was confirmed 97–0, with three Democrats — Joe Biden, Al Gore and Paul Simon — not voting at all because, presumably, they were busy running for president that year.”
