    and ultimately the Presidents office is only successful when you play smart politics.

    I agree that we should just hold down all the fillabuster talk for now and see what turns up.

    Most Americans know that the President gets to nominate the supreme court justices and if we keep establishing a pattern of fillabuster by threatening it every time there is a candiadte for that office, it only serves to weaken our party in the eyes of the voters.

    When trying to win  an election and in selecting a supreme court judge sometimes you have to give a little. That does not mean that we give her a free ride after the questioning has been done. It could very well be that we may wish a fillabuster at that time. There is no way to know yet and to be screaming for it now is foolish.

    Good work Kos
