Supreme Court nominees will face bitter and partisan confirmation battles, Justice Antonin Scalia told an audience on Tuesday at the University of Toledo. He added that selecting a nominee is no longer about finding someone fair, it's about finding someone who agrees with those who make the choice. "It's crazy," he said. "It's like having a mini-constitutional convention every time you pick a Supreme Court justice." Scalia, confirmed 98-0 by the Senate in 1986, said he wouldn't get 60 votes today.
