i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah nnell. happy st. patrick's day. president obama on wednesday named federal appeals chief judge merrick garland to replace antonin scalia. he is considered a moderate and consendus builder. garland explained his philosophyse rose garden. >> fidelity to the constitution and the law has been the cornerstone of my professional life. and is the hallmark of the i have tried to be for the past 18 years. if the senate sees fit to confirm me to the position for which i have been nominated romise to continue on that course.
8:03 am
consider garland, despite bipartisan support during his rmation. seven current republican senators voted for him at that time. the republican acknowledged his own party's previous partisanaying, quote, republicans will point to democrats who have made it hard for republican presidents to get their nominees confirmed. he says a mistake for the gop to do that now. . mitchell mcconnell was unmoved and pointed to a decades' old statement pointed out by joe when joe biden was chairman of the judiciary committee saidrt justice should be filled during a presidential election year because the american people were in the process of speaking that the elections are going on all over the country. the next president will be
