With the Capitol in the distance, the flag flies at half-staff at the Supreme Court in Washington, Wednesday, Feb. 17, 2016, in honor of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who died last Saturday at age 79. Despite widespread insistence from the GOP-controlled Congress that President Barack Obama leave the decision to replace Scalia to the next president, Obama said Tuesday he had no intention of abdicating his responsibilities before leaving office early next year. He chidingly told the Senate he expects "them to do their job as well."
