    If they manage to pull this off, I really feare for the future of our government.  While they may be using this tactic for judges, it is totally arbitrary.  They could do it for any floor debate.

    Furthermore, this is just going to drive the polarized battle in congress over a cliff.  The Republicans kill the filibuster on judicial nominees, the Democrats respond by ignore precedent on how bills are brought to the floor.  Then what do the Republicans do in response, and then the Democrats counter-response.  It's just getting totally out of control.  

    A wise man once said, be careful what you wish for, and I think the Nuclear Option is definitely something to be very careful about.
