Schumer and Dems to "Go To War" over Supreme Court nominations

From Drudge:

Senate Judiciary Committee member Chuck Schumer got busy plotting away on the cellphone aboard a Washington, DC-New York Amtrak -- plotting Democrat strategy for the upcoming Supreme Court battle. Schumer promised a fight over whoever the President’s nominee was: “It's not about an individual judge… It's about how it affects the overall makeup of the court.” The chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee was overheard on a long cellphone conversation with an unknown political ally, and the DRUDGE REPORT was there! Schumer proudly declared: “We are contemplating how we are going to go to war over this.”

Good to know that the Democrats have a strategy (sarcasm intended). Look, I am sure that, if roles were reversed, the Republicans would be doing the same thing. In a perfect world, these nominations would be about whether or not the individual judge is qualified and competent. Put simply, is this person right for the job? Well, that is not how politics works...
I just find it very annoying that a nominee has not been named and yet, the Democrats plan to obstruct the nomination process...
