U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Sunday ruled out the possibility that the Senate could confirm President Barack Obama's Supreme Court nominee in a "lame duck" congressional session after the November presidential election.In several television interviews, McConnell said Republican senators had no intention of confirming Obama's nominee Merrick Garland, even if Democrats win the presidency and the Senate majority in November. This would open up the possibility of a Democratic president sending the Senate a nominee who is more liberal than Garland next year.McConnell says the Republican-run Senate will not have a hearing or a vote on Garland.Garland, 63, is widely viewed as a moderate acceptable to many Republicans.
