The Washington Postreports that Senator Reid is set to invoke the nuclear option before Thanksgiving:
The aide says Reid believes he now has 51 Dem Senators behind a rules change, if it comes down to it. The Huffington Post reports that some Dem Senators who have previously opposed changing the rules — such as Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein — are now open to it. “I believe that we are there,” the aide tells me. . . .
I hope he does conservatives the favor. To quote Senator Grassley, “There are a lot more Scalias and Thomases that we’d love to put on the bench.”
