RE: Gorsuch confirmation hearings begin today
Politico was floating a deal of sorts that the Democrats promise not to filibuster if the Republicans promise not to use the nuclear option for any additional SC nominees that might come up in the next four years. I'd be fine with that - Scalia for Gorsuch is a reasonable trade. But I'd be very concerned who they might want to replace a retiring Ginsberg with as an example.

How about a counter proposal. Do the right thing or eff off.

I like your thinking better. Lose the election - don't get to choose SC positions....

Go scorched earth and tell them to pound sand.

I'd also tell them that if they pull this stunt on a guy they unanimously supported in 2006, when Ginsberg kicks or Kennedy retires this summer they will appoint Ted Cruz by simple majority vote and let him set legal precedent until 2050.

I'd not make the promise because, well, Trump may only get one term and I'd like him to replace two justices (Scalia and one other) with originoalist.

Also... At some point the GOP will be back in the minority, the pendulum always swings. That's what made the whole Biden Rule so delicious.
