    Can I ask why you wouldn't vote for him? Is it because you consider him a RINO?

    Hatuey, the GOP has said they will do this anyway if they get control of the Senate..

    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.
    Sen. Grassley confirmed this today saying GOPers would do this on SCOTUS Justices, something Reid said he still won't do..
    How many more years does the GOP get to wage unilateral War ?

    You used to be for him..
    If he is nominated I will probably vote for him but he would not be my first, second or third choice.

    as usual, today's GOP is on the wrong side of History on their unprecedented use of the filibuster only matcdhed by their unprecedented lying about not using the filibuster when agreements are made in January--McCarthy-style
    you only needed to type" NIMBY was here" .. i already know what you are going to say long before you say it.
    partisans are nothing if not predictable.

    I don't care what the GOP said they were gonna do... they are no better or worse then Democrats..... both are only interested in their power.

    Well, half the people may be cheering him on. I have a personal bone to pick with Hapless Harry and his re-election, thanks to the TP, sticks in my craw.

    Craw - theres a word I haven't seen for a while.

    We'll see how this sorts itself out.

    Sounds like you need to write your own constitution then.
    Majority rule leads to democracy not tyranny. If a majority party is indeed deemed tyrannical by the electorate then they will lose in the next election cycle.
    It would be nice if all legislation could be voted into law by huge majorities every time, but democracy calls for only a simple majority. The three fifths filibuster rule was OK when it was reserved to special circumstances but it has become the standard not the exception in modern legislation. The filibuster has stood in the way of compromise more than it has facilitated it.
    If the minority knows that it can stop a piece of legislation without any need to compromise their position they will.... and recently they have.

    Navy, I asked you why you wouldn't vote for him? Is it because he is a RINO?
