Democrats try to figure out how to be relevant

Chuck Schumer said the Senate should wait to confirm a new Supreme Court nominee -- using the same argument Republican Mitch McConnell used to refuse to vote on President Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland. But Schumer doesn’t control the Senate. So there’s little chance Republicans will wait. That leaves activist Democrats wondering if there’s anything they can do to influence who ends up on the Supreme Court after Anthony Kennedy steps down at the end of July.
