On a video I watched Democratic Party Senator Tom Udall of New Mexico say rather emphatically that on "principle" he was personally against the filibuster of judicial nominees. He called it "the tyranny of the minority." He said this when he was a member of the Senate majority and he wanted Marxists on the Supreme Court. Now that Udall is a member of the Senate minority......he says he is for the filibuster. He has learned to embrace tyranny apparently.
There is only one solution for the Democratic Party that wants a free pass/no filibuster principle to apply to the likes of Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, but retain the "right" to filibuster a superior Supreme Court nominee like Neil Gorsuch.
Mitch McConnell my distant and would-be friend.....Senate civility is a pipe dream. Nuke the bastards and remain in civil war mode until your death.
