The nomination of Judge Alito seems to be a uniting pick. Both sides of the political debate are uniting with their own and it promises to be a brutal fight. I suspect before it is all over it will be apparent the left will be poking through his rubbish, trying to get at video and library records etc.

In the end Alito will be confirmed and any threats of filibuster are doomed to fail. If the Democrats attempt filibuster the Gang of 14 Deal is off and any Republican with presidential aspirations will not support the filibuster or oppose rules amendment. In fact, certain Republican members of the Gang of 14 have declared any attempt to filibuster means the deal is off.
