    No filibustering this time or we will change the rules. As soon as one is nominated they need to get off their ass and confirm him/her.

    Well, when Harry Reid set his precedent, that was ONLY for Federal Judges, NOT Supreme Court Justices (I do not know about actual legislation, but, I believe that the fillibuster rule is still in effect, there)

    Personally, I hope that the GOP does NOT "create" new rules, but.....makes full use of the precedents set in the past 8 years......

    You are correct, the democrats could still filibuster a Supreme Court nominee.

    The rest they can't so hopefully Trump uses the next two years to stack the courts with conservative judges which thanks to Harry Reid, the democrats can't stop.

    I said the polls have her in the lead and I follow the polls.

    For Trump to actually pull out a win would mean my degree is basically worthless.

    Ted Cruz laid out a case that we "only need EIGHT SCOTUS Justices" over the past few weeks.
