Gorsuch confirmation hearings begin today
Say what you want about the left wing, but ultimately they're doing their job. I expect Gorsuch to be confirmed, probably by next month sometime in a narrow victory. My guess is 2-3 Democrats will vote to confirm him - the senator from West Virginia being one of them.

how are they doing their job exactly?....he's as solid a jurist as could've been nominated...

so please expound how the leftist hem-haws are doing their 'job'

disclaimer: don't even come with the obummer attempt during his last year....that was simply politics that would have occurred in any scenario....

He'll need 8 Democratic votes.

the 'nuculer' precedent has been set by the left....so there's that...

if that 'has' to happen from the right??? look out.....the wheels will all flatten moving forward in the sand

the god fearing folk will need to start praying heavily at that point....

I agree with McConnell that the nuclear option should be avoided. I also think that with 10 Dem Senators facing 2018 in states that went to Trump, they can vote for cloture and still vote no on the nomination, thus appeasing both sides. Hopefully that will be the way it plays out.

The nuke will almost certainly be needed if Ginsberg croaks or resigns. There would even be a battle over a Kennedy replacement, who I believe is likely to resign after the 2018 term.

Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp, Jon Tester, Joe Donnelly and Jeanne Shaheen will support him.

Only need 3 others.
