    when he said he has the votes.

    There are almost 200 judicial position to fill, If Reid gives so much for so little, as he has on other issues, what will the Republicans demand for each judgeship?

    If Reid can't get an honest deal then leave this huge PR issue for the election next year.  And get Obama to finally get off the John and  make all the judicial nominations and drown the Republicans with them in the year before the election.

    Don't allow them to look even remotely reasonable.

      The Prez has no actual power over the Democratis Senators. But if I was the Prez, I'd invite myself to a Dem Sen caucus meeting, and tell the room I want Harry Reid out as "Leader", and I want the filibuster eliminated as much as legally possible. Damn the future consequences if Repugs ever ger 50 Senators plus the Presidency, or 51 or more Senators. Let the majority rule, as it does with an iron fist in the House.
