    The problem is that Democrats don't play tit for tat with the Republicans. Thus, Republicans win when they play the game of obstruction. When Clinton was president, the Republicans filibustered almost every bill Clinton proposed. Because the Democrats did not make the Republicans pay for this tactic when Bush was president, the Republicans decided to play the same game with Obama. The Democrats must block all judicial nominees of the next Republican nominee even if it means that the judicial system collapses.

    Unfortunately, given the track record, once we have a Republican president, all of the vacancies will be filled by conservative judges.
