Biden: No Election-Year SCOTUS Nominations

With the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia and the resulting Supreme Court vacancy, there's been quite a debate going on about whether the GOP-controlled Senate should confirm any nominee from President Obama, thus passing the appointment on to the next president.  Some have pointed out how Senator Schumer (D-NY) wanted to deny President Bush any such confirmations during 2007 and 2008, thus handing any SCOTUS appointments during those years over to the winner of the 2008 election.  Some research by C-SPAN has turned up another Democrat senator, who currently is our vice president, speaking out in an attempt to discourage any election-year SCOTUS nominations from President Bush - the first President Bush.
