Award For Most Opaque Statement On Scalia Successor Goes To …

Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV):

The chances of approving a new nominee are slim, but Nevadans should have a voice in the process. That’s why I encourage the President to use this opportunity to put the will of the people ahead of advancing a liberal agenda on the nation’s highest court. But should he decide to nominate someone to the Supreme Court, who knows, maybe it’ll be a Nevadan.

What does that even mean?

Late Update: The statement was so confusing that some news organizations took it as a sign that Heller was taking a more open stance to an Obama nomination, but his office has clarified that was not the case and Heller doesn’t think Obama should nomination anyone.
