The smart thing for the Senate to do is to go ahead and confirm Merrick Garland. They’re not going to get a better deal out of President Clinton.

Unless, of course, their plan is to NEVER confirm anyone until A) they get a Republican in the White House (which won’t happen for years, until they fix their party), or B) the Democrats get a 60+ majority in the Senate (at which point, the Republicans lose their power completely).

And B) looks more likely to occur first, as Americans get fed up with what they’ve got now.
