    I'm going to break ranks here and say this isn't a good idea. If it wasn't a good idea when Republicans proposed it, it definitely isn't a good idea now that Democrats have put it to work.

    Democrats have carped about the number of President Obama's nominees for whom Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has had to invoke cloture, a vote on ending debate that requires 60 votes. This summer, when Democrats were promising they were mulling the "nuclear option" only for executive-branch nominees and not judges -- guess what, they changed their minds! -- they spoke breathlessly about "an increase of more than 1,000% in the rate of forced cloture votes on [executive-branch] nominations." Which sounds like something to chew on, until you consider a) they were talking about only 16 nominees (later updated to 27) out of almost 1,600, and b) 25 of the 27 were confirmed and took office.

    I'll take your word for it on whatever Rush's opinion is, not a listener (though you apparently are).

    Now, I'm posting this only because she had her thesis pulled from distribution so it didn't queer her chances and this contains some of the references:

    Heh, then I will break ranks as someone who opposes liberals and say it IS a good idea. I don't believe in using technical rules to stop procedure. Unlimited debate is a good idea. Using unlimited debate to stop normal procedure is not, especially when they talk gibberish. Of course recently the filibuster isn't actually being used. No one actually stands up an talks. They just threaten to, and no one challenges them. Reid should have started by forcing them to actually talk.
