    •  Big problem for dealing with -2nd- nominee (none)
         if we don't mount a filibuster, at least for one round or so, (if not to the bitter end).

      It's a miscalculated strategy.  I just figured out a very immediate problem (like a time-bomb) with this no-party-discipline strategy that's emerging, and I wrote it up here.

      Reid's heart is in the right place, and what he did today was a good first step, but I explain why we need to firmly oppose, and use our minority power.
      If we don't use it for Roberts, we won't be able to use it for the next one.  Full explanation at link.
