What happens to the Supreme Court (and the Constitution) if Trump wins
The Supreme Court has rejected some of the GOP’s sloppiest and most presumptuous arguments. It won’t anymore if Republicans grow their majority.McConnell’s “nine out of 10” estimate is almost certainly an exaggeration, but there’s no question that Republicans view filling the judiciary with Federalist Society stalwarts as one of their highest priorities, if not the highest priority.
(Reuters) - Phil Mickelson, fresh off his second consecutive victory on the senior circuit, is brimming with confidence as he transitions back to the PGA Tour this week to face "the young guys" at the Zozo Championship in Thousand Oaks, California.
Mickelson, 50, won his second PGA Tour Champions event on Sunday after winning his debut in August and is eager to compete among a loaded field at Sherwood Country Club where first-round action begins on Thursday.
"I'm excited to compete and come off of last week's event on the Champions Tour and try to play, compete against the young guys," Mickelson said on Wednesday. "This is a fun opportunity for me."

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined Shan and RJ and answered criticism about not signing quarterback Dak Prescott to a long-term contract before his season-ending ankle injury.
Mickelson won the most recent of his 44 PGA Tour victories in February 2019 but is hoping his early success on the over-50 circuit will carry over to the regular tour.
"It's been fun for me to play over there. I seem to get a little bit of confidence and I'm hoping to bring that over into this event as well," said Mickelson.

"But the penalty for a miss is much more severe on the regular tour, the pin placements are a little bit more difficult ... I have to be a little bit more precise."
For Mickelson, his Zozo Championship debut this week is all part of his preparation for the Masters, which because of the COVID-19 pandemic, will be played this year from Nov. 12-15 as opposed to its usual spot in early April.
Mickelson said cooler temperatures for the Masters will make the Augusta National layout play longer than usual and favour some of the game's big-hitters.
But Mickelson, a three-times Masters champion, has improved his putting since the year began and feels that could give him an edge on Augusta National's fast, undulating greens.
"I putted poorly starting the year and it's really come around," said Mickelson. "I'm excited to get to that golf course putting the way I am, I think I can get in contention."

Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara help New Orleans Saints outlast Chicago Bears with field goal in overtime .
Alvin Kamara almost made the Saints forget they were without Michael Thomas (hamstring), Marquez Gallaway (ankle) and Emmanuel Sanders (COVID-19). He caught nine passes for 96 yards and ran for another 67 – including a 20-yard burst in overtime that put the Saints at the Bears 11, all but sealing the game. Jared Cook and Taysom Hill both caught touchdown passes from Drew Brees, and Lutz made four of five field goal attempts – no easy feat when winds were gusting and swirling at Soldier Field. It was the second loss in a row for the Bears, who had been perfect at home in November under coach Matt Nagy.
