President Trump hasn’t even announced who his Supreme Court nominee will be and already Senate Democrats have announced their intention to use the filibuster to oppose his nomination.

With Trump prepared to announce his nominee on Tuesday evening, Sen. Jeff Merkle, a pro-abortion Oregon Democrat, said in an interview on Monday morning that he will filibuster any pick other than pro-abortion Judge Merrick garland — who pro-abortion president Barack Obama named to replace pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia.

They did and the Republicans may stop playing nice and invoke using the Dem's rule chage. Senate GOP leaders were hoping for cooperation in confirmations like the they gave the Dems when Obama was first elected. Obviously it is stupid to place any hope in the Dems.

Most only focus on their constituents every 6 years if re-running for office. I know this is a snarky comment but it has proven to be true for a lor of US Senators.
