    The fact that Leahy and Schumer opened their mouths and said something means they are sell-outs?

    Getting Obama's nominations through the Senate means giving all the power to the GOP forever?

    Sorry, but I really don't get it.

      ...which means actually doing stuff which "could be back on the table" but it will take more than "firm resolve" or "nuclear threats".  Actually doing stuff does mean getting these noms through the Senate but what Leahy or Shumer says in public has never been an indicator of relevance.

      My impression of Shumers comment is that he just wants to cover the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals , and then be done with it

      And my over all impression of him a many dems like him the last 4 years is that they do not want to do much about this at all

      So I really do not feel I am missing anything in that comment
