It seems as he is someone who would be hard to vote against.  That seems to have no effect on the voting process though.  The Democrats can and will Filibuster forever if they want.  It is going to take 60 votes to cutoff  the filibuster and invoke cloture on him.  I doubt there will be 8 Democrats that will vote for cloture (even if we can find 52 Republicans to do so).  This will mean it will drag on forever.  Here are the rules on stopping Debate in the Senate ==

Prune faced McConnell will have to get his act together because America is in a constitutional crisis with a weak Supreme Court. The Judicial system must be corrected with some strong SC decisions and corrections or it is going to be absolute chaos. Violence will ensue.

I'm actually thinking the Gorsuch nomination process will not be as horrific as some are thinking. I'm sure it will have its moments, but the real knock-down-drag-out will be for Trump's 2nd SC pick, if that opportunity presents itself.

I tend to agree and I think the democrats are aware that they need to pick their battles. Just like all the cabinet nominations... I am pretty sure they dems will put on their show and then, it will happen. They know they are beat.

Agree he is a walk through and a replacement and McConnell will not use the Nuclear Option and he is breathing a sign of relief over that one. The next one is for KEEPS and the DEMS, RINOGOPe, UNIPARTY will fight that. The Turtle said he set precedence with the last one and Nuclear Option out of the question. That is the UNIPARTY PLAN and watch it unfold. Enjoy! Angry

In my link above (also below) on the Senate Rules, it says to change the Rules it requires 67 Votes.  I am fairly sure there were not 67 votes when Harry Reid eliminated the Filibuster in 2013.  That part I did not understand.  Anyone?

Time to drop the nuclear option and get him confirmed. I know they'd rather not do that, but I'm tired of this slow walking s**t. Trump still doesn't have a full cabinet for goodness sake! Weasels that they are, it's time for the GOP to pull their heads out of the b***s, get some backbone, step all over the Dems and get this administration's agenda going. Get with it or get out of the way!!!!!!!

Get out of the way is the answer BUT how does that get accomplished?

Wish I knew, if nothing else, just shut up and be and abstaining vote rather than dragging stuff out with all the quibbling. It's too bad that there isn't a way for a majority of members of a party to sanction/police their own membership in some way when a member/members become/s a party liability.
