I have to laugh at all the “just wait until the Republicans take over” posts here. If they do get a majority there will always be a few across the aisle types. Hell, they might even reinstate the 60 vote rule for nominees in the interest of healing old wounds so we can all just get along.
Furthermore, what makes any of these people think there will be another Republican president nominating anyone. I think the left has put enough perpetual entitlements in place and has enough people on food stamps, Medicaid, disability, etc.. that we will never see another Republican president. They have taken over the IRS, NSA, military, etc... so that they have the infrastructure in place to "manage" any close election to their benefit. People need to come to grips with the fact that Obama has achieved his goal of fundamentally changing our country.
It is over.
