  •  This nuke is overdue. (4+ / 0-)

    It's my belief that the option has been due since Republicans abandoned the bipartisan group preventing filibusters on judicial appointments when the White House went from being in Republican hands to being in Democratic hands. As soon as Obama was sworn in, Republicans didn't see the need to end filibusters of judicial appointments, anymore.

    The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won, whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory.
