There were years in the Obama presidency in which the Senate was controlled by a Democratic majority. They nominated a replacement and, if necessary, changed the rules so McConnell couldn't block it.

If RGB retires or dies during a Trump presidency, it will rightly tarnish her legacy. She passed a perfect opportunity to safeguard the seat.
