Senate Rules

This is getting tedious with all the spin about whether or not the Senate should rule that a majority of those present and voting should be allowed to confirm a presidential nominee to a federal court. The democrats are loudly proclaiming that it would be a travesty if the rule were changed since the minority would not be able to filibuster judicial nominees. To get a firm grasp on just how specious that argument is, ask yourself this. If the Republicans do get such a ruling, do you think that when the dems get the senate back (and they will) and have a dem President, they will change the rule back so the republicans can then filibuster their nominees? The principle will not be so holy under those circumstances.
