The US Supreme Court and the Race to the White House 32 MIN, 49 SEC

The late Justice Antonin Scalia was famous for reliance on what he called the "original intent" behind America's founding document. His sudden death is creating winners and losers in cases now evenly split between conservatives and liberals. Immigration, abortion, voting rights and the power of organized labor will all be affected, dramatizing the Supreme Court's enormous influence on American life. This year's election could help shape the Third Branch of Government for generations to come. So, what about Scalia's successor?
