Quote

 

"The president certainly cares about his legacy, and successfully filling the [Supreme Court] seat, overcoming the impasse with the Senate, and placing a political moderate on the bench could go a long way to burnishing that legacy during his last year."
Tom S. Clark, The Guardian, Feb. 25, 2016
