Battle Lines Forming In War Over Trump Court

Opening shots are being fired over Donald Trump's anticipated Supreme Court nomination. A conservative advocacy group is running television ads urging Trump to appoint a justice in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia. New Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer fires back that Democrats will try to block any nominee who isn't "mainstream."
Trouble is, anybody who disputes the Democrats' left-wing definition of the Constitution as a malleable "living" document is outside their mainstream.
Meanwhile, pro-choice women's groups are panicked about losing abortion "rights." For now, it's much ado about nothing. No matter whom Trump appoints this time, there are already five pro-choice justices on the Court, counting Justice Anthony Kennedy. It would take a second Trump appointment to tilt the Court the other way.
