” Nomination to Supreme Court – A Logjam Ahead ” – September 20, 2020.
Minority Leader, (D), Chuck Schumer’s Unity and Legacy ; and Congresswoman, (D), New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘ People’s right being at stake now’ if there is a nomination to the Supreme Court by the Republicans within days speak of logical positivism.
Both spoke from the same podium tonight also speaking for building bridges within the Democratic Party.
Senator, Chuck Schumer, while making a strong plea to the Senators, specially the Republicans, to abide by the “last wishes” of the ‘ saintly, brilliant, and caring woman, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, may have succeeded in evoking the public sentiment ; sensitivity to the needs of people ; and to raise seriously the moral judgements of the law makers – in fulfilling her wishes.
Fulfilment of the last wishes adds respectability to the authority that Ruth Bader Ginsburg held in her professional career, and enhances the dignity to the individual.
It is also important to remember that the last wish at this moment relates to a key national appointment that has implications to the political fight for victory or otherwise in the November 3, General Election; when the following need consideration :
1. The real significance of the last wish is not clear ;
2. The legality, practicality, and feasibility presenting a dilemma in a sense of whether the wishes can prevail or not ;
3. Whether it really supports or clashes with the larger interests of people ;
4. Whether it will be viewed as correct or incorrect in the midst of an election ( with early voting already on ) and not close to an election ; and
5. Whether it will contribute to positive changes, outcomes, and impact on the lives of citizens as a whole.
The tide of general opinion at this point in time may well seem to be in favour of what the two lawmakers have expressed tonight but the real potential of the decision is subject to ups and downs not just by days but by hours from now.
Is there a bearer of good tidings that may also be viewed as the most justifiable ? Nobody will be able to say !
