– Pointing us back to the
governing document itself should give us the guidance that we need, and the governing
document, it says nothing, absolutely nothing about
the president’s inability to exercise this duty or this power while the president is a lame duck or during the last year
before an election. So, given that the constitution says nothing about prohibiting this, I think the textualist interpretation, the interpretation I think
that Justice Scalia would have is that the duty is to be preformed. The Republican controlled
senate is not going to consider anyone who they
perceive as judicial activist, so it needs to be someone who has exercised judicial restraint and can demonstrate that
through their judicial record.
