  • U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2015

"I'm going to try and do something like that, but I don't think I'm going to be so specific".

The president said he was not intending to ask candidates about their positions on Roe v. Wade, the landmark abortion rights case that the court decided in 1973.

Some progressives are so articulate in their expressions of hate, loss, and exasperation over Kennedy's retirement that they just couldn't help but blurt out their feelings.

Ninety percent of Democrats said the vacancy would make them more likely to vote for a Democratic Senate candidate in the November 6 election, compared with 81 percent of Republicans who said the issue would make them more likely to vote for a Senate candidate from their party. Joe Manchin III (W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) and Joe Donnelly (Ind.) met with the president at the White House on Thursday night and are under pressure from liberal activists and their colleagues.

They include judges Amy Coney Barrett, 46, the most talked-about woman on the list; Thomas Hardiman, 52, the runner-up to Gorsuch previous year; Raymond Kethledge, 51, another former Kennedy clerk; and Amul Thapar, 49, a favorite of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

"He's an outstanding talent", he said. "Usually, they don't say that". "I love that issue if they're going to actually do that".

Apple and Samsung settle their smartphone-design patent fight after seven years
Apple was originally awarded $1 billion in damages, but a series of appeals pushed the ruling all the way to the Supreme Court . Some of the specific features Apple feels Samsung stole include home screen app grids, tap to zoom, and "bounceback" scrolling.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Friday he hoped the confirmation process would be done "in time for the new justice to begin the fall term of the Supreme Court. the first Monday in October".

With Gorsuch, his body of work and his writing were important, but Trump was also impressed by his educational record and his class ranking. Gorsuch was the youngest nominee since Clarence Thomas, who was 43 when confirmed in 1991.

The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative political campaign organization, has launched a seven-figure ad buy aimed at vulnerable Democrats, said chief counsel and policy director Carrie Severino.

For Republicans' part, they need to balance actively campaigning against the trio in 2018, while courting their votes for the Supreme Court nominee.

With a little over a week before his big announcement, Trump is relishing the moment. Mr Trump's ambitions mean that come 2043 his selection could still be one of the nine justices making the most important legal rulings in America.
