  4. Hillary Clinton:

    It’s one of the reasons that I think a lot of Americans are just fed up with the whole political process. Because, in a democracy you have to have at least enough trust to be able to work with each other and solve difficult problems, when the Republicans refuse to give a distinguished judge appointed by President Obama even the courtesy of meetings, let alone a hearing, that sent such a terrible message. Now, what they’ve done in this case is to hold back information, they have not provided all the information, which was always made available for other nominees, and they’re trying to rush this through to the detriment of the American public, who deserves to have answers to whatever charges might be presented.

  5. Jeb Bush:

    One of the frustrations that I had is that people that don't have a proven record get appointed to the Court and then they wander.
