Nuclear Option? Perhaps Not So Fast.
As the second Bush administration is about to take hold much talk is swirling around the nation's capital about judicial nominees. The big question is whether the Democrats will continue to filibuster some nominees, and if so what will be the GOP response. The most talked about repsonse by the Republicans has been the "nuclear ("nu-ku-lar") option."
This Washington Post article however questions whether or not the GOP will have the votes to implement the option. And of course, the Democrats are threatening retribution should the GOP end filibusters.
In any event it should be a fun fight. Let the battles begin.
