Why is Donald Trump in such a hurry to fill RBG's seat? Let's think about it.

If Trump was pretty sure that he is going to get re-elected, why would there be any rush? Fill the seat after the election. Take your time. Let the process work out so that Americans see how careful Trump is about filling such an important post.

But if Trump is insecure about re-election, everything changes. Again, let's think about it.

In recent weeks, Trump has disparaged voting by mail and has attempted to cripple the postal service. Now what happens if he loses on November 3rd. He's already told us that he will contest the election. And where is that likely to wind up? BINGO! The Supreme Court. Wouldn't it be nice if there was one more Trump pick there?

What does Trump care about more than anything else in the world? That's easy: getting re-elected. And you can't blame him. Once he no longer has the shield of the presidency (and some help from Bill Barr), he will face the music for all of his misdeeds (read crimes).

Filling the seat is urgent. For Donald Trump. Stopping him is more urgent. For our country, our democracy.
