I would like to take a moment about his arrival on the Supreme Court as well as to talk about where we go from here.
It is worth remembering that when Scalia was confirmed by the Senate in 1986 the vote was 98-0. Republicans and Democrats united to vote to confirm him.
A year later, Democrats would filibuster Robert Bork. Let's just say those days of unaminous consent are gone.
There is also a good chance the conservative majority on the Supreme Court has passed along with Scalia. Of course, Scalia's presenece on the court didn't stop Obamacare from being upheld. But a new liberal justice on the court will be the deathblow of judicial restraint for a generation, if not longer.
