    to getting rid of the judicial filibuster.

    Only 3 GOP members of the Gang of 14 are left. Collins, McCain and Graham, and McCain might retire in 2016.

    I do think GOP would need 55+ seats in the Senate to get rid of the filibuster and it's hard to see that happening in the next couple of election cycles, at least right now.

    •  jj32 - I think we agree (0+ / 0-)

      There are at least five and maybe more GOP senators who wouldn't vote for filibuster reform. It will be difficult for the GOP to even win a slim majority in 2014 or 2016.
