    Re: A Chronicle of our Descent to Hades

    You set the precedent for the next time the GOP holds power (and they will, eventually). The SCOTUS becomes a joke (Suliso's point), and next time the GOP holds the WH and the Senate they will put 4...

    Not this time. Other than Kamala, due to the reasons mentioned by Ti, risking losing a senate seat is too high a price. If the GOP retains the Senate, and McConnell remains there, it will be 4 years...
