election. just minutes after president obama introduced merrick garland.. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell said no. mcconnell is adamant that whoever is elected president this year should make that pick. he says it has nothing to do with garland's credentials.. the harvard law grad is the chief judge on the u-s court of appeals in washington.. considered the second most powerful court in the land. but, president obama says what sets garland apart.. is his temperament. 3 "fidelity to the constitution and the law has been the highlight of my professional life. if the senate sees fit to confirm me to the position to which i've been nominated today, i promise to continue on that course." mcconnell called garland to tell him to not even bother showing up to meetings today. because he won't meet with him. some g-o-p senators, however, have said they would meet with garland. 3 the president of northern kentucky university worked with judge garland nearly 20 years ago. local-12's angenette levy sat
