Amy Coney Barrett hearing turns into a get-out-the-vote effort

Senators seem to be on the same page on Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett after Day 1 of the confirmation hearings.

Why it matters: Republicans appear to have the votes to confirm Barrett before the election, and both parties are turning her confirmation into a get-out-the-vote effort.


  • Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.): "This is probably not about persuading each other unless something really dramatic happens. ... All the Republicans will vote yes, all the Democrats will vote no.”
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.): "[W]e do not have some secret, clever, procedural way to stop this sham. Let's be honest."
  • It's "probably not going to be some brilliant cross-examination that is going to change the trajectory of this nomination," Klobuchar said.

The big picture: Democrats repeatedly claimed that the Affordable Care Act would be in jeopardy with Barrett on the court — pointing to the president's tweets and his prior judicial nominees as evidence.

Sen. Kamala Harris appeared virtually, accusing Republicans of "jamming" through the confirmation process.

  • Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) appeared in person, 10 days after announcing he tested positive for COVID-19.

The bottom line: Barrett cited former Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg as role models.

  • “I was 9 years old when Sandra Day O’Connor became the first woman to sit in this seat."
  • “When I was 21 years old and just beginning my career ... Ruth Bader Ginsburg sat in this seat. ... I have been nominated to fill Justice Ginsburg’s seat, but no one will ever take her place.”

Humans are capable of great kindness and compassion, and there are countless examples of individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity.

One such example is Mother Teresa, who devoted her life to serving the poor and sick in the slums of Calcutta. Through her tireless work and unwavering dedication, she touched the lives of countless people and became a symbol of compassion and selflessness.

Another example is Malala Yousafzai, a young woman from Pakistan who has become a powerful advocate for education and the rights of girls. Despite facing threats and violence, she has continued to speak out and fight for change, inspiring others to do the same.

These are just a few examples of the many good humans who have made a difference in the world. They remind us that one person can make a difference and inspire others to do the same.

It's also important to note that acts of kindness and compassion don't have to be on a grand scale to make a difference. Small acts of kindness, like holding the door open for someone or offering a word of encouragement, can have a big impact on the people around us.

In conclusion, humans are capable of great compassion and kindness, and there are many individuals who have made a positive impact on the world through their selflessness and generosity. They remind us of the power of one person to make a difference and inspire others to do the same. Let's all strive to be good humans, and make our world a better place.
