announcement thursday, pryor directed his remarks to younger generations saying although the country is divided, the high court helps unite it. it's a kind of miracle when you sit there and see all those people in front of you, you had the people that are so different than what they think. >> and yet they've decided. to help. so there are major differences. >> under law as one of the liberal justices on the bench right around landmark opinions from reproductive rights to health care to voting rights is a model public servant in a time of great division in this country. in the 90's, president biden presided over briar supreme court confirmation hearings when he was chairman of the senate judiciary committee. did we ever think that he would have served decades on the court and i'd be president united states with he came in retired and now the president is tasked with nominating his successor, something he plans to do by the end of february. i have made no choices except one. that person will be the
5:31 pm
first black woman ever nominated to united states supreme court. it's long overdue. mind. >> and the short list includes federal district judge brown jackson, who actually clerked for briar and california supreme court justice. we under krueger live in washington. i'm jessi turnure. yeah, we california on that list, jesse. so of course, we just saw this whole thing play out with justice. amy coney when she replace ruth bader ginsburg. so what do you think is going to look like this time? the process sounds like it could be very similar, actually. and this is really unprecedented when it came to bear its process from the time that president trump nominated her to the time that she was confirmed was only about a month. and the reason why republicans want to push that forward was because it was right before the election and they wanted to do that. just in case president trump lost democrats criticize that at the time. but now it sounds like they're interested in doing it the same thing, which
5:32 pm
means that another justice could be confirmed as early as the end of march. that doesn't mean that briar won't be able to finish his term. he's very likely to do that. which extends into the summer. all right. thank you. of course, speculation continues on exactly who will replace justice briar. political analysts have been very busy with for talk to one of them today. and our catherine heenan has more on that. she's in the newsroom tonight, catherine hype. and yet donna crane, she is calling a time like this. >> titanic by washington, dc standards, the political science lecturer having really as much fun as anybody in trying to figure out what happens next. she says there is a good working list of 5 or 6 women, black women who are ready and qualified to take over for justice briar and says the jockeying behind the scenes will get intense. but crimes says the judicial nomination process also tends to do something that people might not expect.
5:33 pm
>> judicial nominees tend to be unified parties in ways that broad pieces of legislation dot there. just a lot of details to pick apart of legislation. and you kind of see a little bit more wandering like mister mentioned but both on the democratic and republican sides of the aisle. what i've seen is that the people that expectation a part of leadership is that that the team will stay together. it is worth however, that when one of the nominees is one of the candidates is not what it says. the top of the was nominated for her position, the position she has now she did receive 3 republican votes, not kentucky about jacques. >> and she is talking about the fact that judge jackson already did successfully go through the senate confirmation process last year. that's when she moved to the u.s. court of appeals for the dc circuit and yes, she did get a few republican votes. meantime, donna says we should never make any assumptions on how things play out. she says she never rules

5:36 pm
the coastline ever. so slowly moving in to southern california, not bring us any rain. but you know, if that's on saturday, remember game and southern california on saturday. don't think we'll see much in the way of rain in los angeles. but we're talking about some partly cloudy skies and dry conditions here. and then as we head through the weekend, what looked like a promising a storm system a couple days ago, really stay fading away. now and not much in the way to talk about rain just kind of pulled out the forecast now keep things dry and partly cloudy into monday. the high pressure ridge does build in then looks like it's going to hold on. i think now we're looking at maybe the middle february before we start talking about some significant rain returning to the bay area, air quality deaths been suffering a bit. we're going to moderate amounts of pollutants again in the north bay, the east and the south bay still in good up toward the coastline. we have had some very cold nights out there overnight lows dropping off in the 30's in the 40's. chilly out there early on the morning hours. but by the middle of the day in the afternoon, looking good. high clouds and some sunshine and temperatures running up in the
