STU: Neil Gorsuch was confirmed in 2006 to his current role. Here's some people that voted for him: Dianne Feinstein. Ron Wyden. Richard Durbin, Dick Durbin. Chuck Schumer. Bill Nelson. Debbie Stabenow. Maria Cantwell. Bob Menendez. And four more you might know: Hillary Clinton.
STU: John Kerry.
STU: Joe Biden.
STU: And another senator from Illinois, Barack Obama. Just those people thought he was fine in 2006. But now, surely, there's going to be an extreme distaste for --
GLENN: Oh, yeah --
STU: -- for Mr. Gorsuch.
GLENN: No, now he's -- now he's Bork. Now he's Bork.
STU: Yeah. I think there's -- a lot of people are saying, "Maybe they won't go after this one, because if they force the Republicans to use the nuclear option here, they'll use it again for sure when -- if Ginsburg or Kennedy were to leave."
GLENN: I guarantee you -- I guarantee you, Donald Trump will use the nuclear option. Guarantee it.
PAT: Well, he doesn't have that option. But I guess he could encourage McConnell to do that.
GLENN: Yes. But I guarantee you that they will use the nuclear option. And --
STU: The thought is, if they don't use it this time, maybe they have an argument for them not to use it next time.
If they use it -- if they force -- Democrats force Republicans to use it this time, they'll just use it again if Ginsburg or Kennedy were to go, and then they're really screwed.
GLENN: Yep. Yep.
STU: Which is good for us.
