<p>During the panel segment Sunday morning on ABC&rsquo;s <em>This Week</em>, <em>Weekly Standard</em> editor Bill Kristol schooled ABC News political analyst and former Bush administration official Matthew Dowd on how Democrats have long politicized judicial nominees after Dowd lamented that<strong> &ldquo;Republicans have made a mistake&rdquo;</strong> in reacting to the death of conservative Justice Antonin Scalia and urged them to consider President Obama&rsquo;s nominee.&nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>&ldquo;Republicans have made a mistake in their reaction to this, the initial reaction to this. I think a better tack would have been, listen, the President has a constitutional duty to nominate somebody to the Supreme Court and the U.S. Senate has a constitutional duty to decide whether or not they approve that person,&rdquo;</strong> Dowd complained.&nbsp;</p>
