    Why are the Democrats such obstructionists?

    Gorsuch will be confirmed, no matter what.

    Agreed.

    McCain has said he would go nuclear, providing cover for all Senate Republicans.

    That was an easy one.

    A harder question to answer is why. I think the GOP leadership is convinced that either Trump is not long for this world, or their Senate Majority isn't, and they need to make whatever inroads they can while they can still make them.

    With just 52 Senators, there's no room.

    I think this is also the guy they really want...a Scalia clone who's only 47.

    I was trying to think how many times that 52-48 has shifted in my lifetime, and its been a lot.

    Yeah, and it's probably most often during a non-presidential election year.

    Had Trumpcare passed there's a good chance both chambers would have gone Democratic in the election following the law's implementation because of how many voters would have been screwed. Ryan and McConnell are many unpleasant things, but stupid is not among them.
