The Senate Democrats who successfully blocked Neil Gorsuch can hold their heads high because they refused to allow a corrupt president, and a morally bankrupt Senate Majority Leader to steal a Supreme Court seat without a fight.

Pressure from liberal groups has combined with frustration with endless Senate Republican obstruction to result in Majority Leader Harry Reid seriously looking at going nuclear and ending the 60 vote rule on all Republican filibusters.
The hope from Republicans was that Reid would just table some of the nominees and hold off until January after the Christmas break. That isn't happening.
Republican Senators went through with their plan on Wednesday and held up business in the Senate by debating to delay the vote on one of President Obama's judicial nominees.
After allowing Republican dictators-by-committee to hold sway over a crucial portion of government for nearly five years, Majority Leader Harry Reid did what he should have done three years ago.
There are a bunch of Republicans besides McConnell who, when Bush was president, said they'd never, ever filibuster a nominee.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor that enough was enough, and he announced that he is going nuclear on Republican filibusters today.
After Senate Republicans blocked a third Obama judicial nomination this week, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has reached his breaking point and is ready to go nuclear.
Mitch McConnell abandoned his tough talk on Meet The Press, and went into full suck up mode. He called Harry Reid a good man, and a good majority leader while begging for no nuclear option.
