Antonin Scalia: American Original and a Sacrificial SCOTUS Nominee


On the Webcast Extra, long-time Supreme Court reporter Joan Biskupic tells stories of Antonin Scalia, the man who she literally wrote the book on. And as the fight to nominate Scalia’s successor picks up, talk about a potential “sacrificial” nominee has picked up because Republicans have vowed to block anyone nominated by Obama. And John Dickerson, who moderated the most recent Republican presidential debate, discusses how his team changed focus in the hours after Scalia’s death. Plus, Washington Week regular Peter Baker prepares to take on a new role in Jerusalem and explains how years of reporting on Washington fighting has prepared him for his Middle East assignment.
