    "Which the Senate is unlikely to do as long as it's Obama doing the nominating...."

    Or as long as Harry Reid is Majority Leader.

    Situations like this are the very reason I bought into the "filibuster reform" nonsense.  Stupid me! I actually thought that the Democrats -- at least the Senate Democratic leadership -- were serious about fixing the senate so that stuff would get done without Reid and his Republican buddies bollixing things up.

    Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice....

      and we get rid of a big obstacle to governing.
      He sold us out.

    •  Filibuster reform (0+ / 0-)

      Missed opportunities in 2009. And 2011. And 2013.

      In 2015, we need a new Democratic majority leader who supports real reform - and getting stuff done.

      Filibuster reform, 2013 - woulda, coulda, shoulda.
