    retake the presidency, which they will at some point, the backlog of judicial openings all get filled with Republican judges and the Democrats will rubber stamp all the nominations is my guess.

      if the GOP gets the presidency, they'll get the senate too - and even a 50-50 senate with a GOP VP as tie breaker will eliminate the filibuster and do whatever they want.

      a la MI, WI, FL, TX and a few other GOP states in the past few years.

      Bullies & Thugs - or, as stated in another post I just read, Fascists.
