With their current Senate majority, they would be eager to force Obama to nominate a "moderate" to replace the liberal Ginsburg. Only because Scalia was an arch conservative, whose sudden absence from the court has shocked and frightened Republicans, have they dug in their heels and refused to let Obama replace him with a moderate.
