Obama Has Begun Work Picking New Supreme Court Justice

RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif./WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The White House on Monday said President Barack Obama had started preliminary discussions with his team about naming a Supreme Court justice nominee and accused Republicans of “bluster” for saying they would not confirm his pick.
