First Monday in October

So you want President Obama to nominate someone to replace Justice Scalia on the Supreme Court.
How does the calendar work for that?
It's mid February.
Almost all the important cases of this term have been heard or scheduled.
Usually the last case is heard in late March, and opinions released in June.
No need for someone before then.
The next term starts the first Monday of October.
Five weeks before Election Day.
When we'll have two candidates who'd like input in Supreme Court appointments that they will have to deal with.
There's time to make the right decision.
