The political lines being drawn in Washington with this weekend's death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. President Obama wants to name a successor but Republicans are urging him to wait for the next President.
FOX's Jared Halpern reports from Capitol Hill:
Senator Bernie Sanders running for the Democratic presidential nomination, doesn't think a Supreme Court vacancy should linger past the election, telling FOX News Sunday:
(Sanders) "President Obama, in my view, should make that nomination. I hope he does it as soon as possible."
But any nominee is unlikely to be confirmed. Long-time Senate Judiciary Committee Republican Orrin Hatch warns:
(Hatch) "I think almost anybody with brains would say this is probably not the time to pick the next Supreme Court Justice because there's just too much infighting between both sides."
President Obama promises to name a nominee in due time.
