(UnitedVoice.com) – Washington, DC, has been alive with debate about Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court replacement since her death on Friday, September 18. Despite President Donald Trump’s clear Constitutional mandate to fill the position as he sees fit, many Democrats have claimed he should wait until after the election. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have been especially vocal, encouraging followers to do everything in their power to resist a Trump candidate.
However, one notable absentee from this discussion has been presidential nominee Joe Biden. As Laura Ingraham was keen to note on Monday, the former VP has not contributed to any public discussion on the question of Ginsburg’s successor. As the man who’d have to select a candidate if Trump does not, and he wins in November, this is a strange omission.
His silence is especially worrying in the context of the frenzied responses of other, more radical, party members. Biden’s failure to comment on their positions gives them legitimacy; given the nature of what they’re proposing, this should concern any American who values the rule of law.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg opposed packing the Supreme Court, saying "Nine seems to be a good number. I think it was a bad idea when FDR tried to pack the court."
But Democrats say "nothing is off the table" – even court packing
Why won't they follow RBG's wish to keep the court at 9?

With questions about the 77-year-old’s cognitive fitness continuing to swirl, this isn’t something the Democratic campaign needs right now. The fact that more junior party members have taken the lead on this issue leads one to wonder who’s really pulling the strings behind the scenes.
