      Obama's Richard Cordray nomination is severely undermined thanks to the recess appointment ruling threatening to strip Obama of that key power. Obama strongly supports Cordray and Elizabeth Warren pushed Cordray. There is no doubt Obama is feeling pissed about Richard Cordray facing a struggle because of the filibuster still complicating things.

      Filibuster reform would have created a safeguard for his key nominations and supreme court nominations.

        I apologize for being overly cynical.

        Can't figure out what Reid is thinking.
