McConnell lost the battle when Democrats voted to effectively change the rules and prevent filibusters on all nominations except those to the Supreme Court.

    Hope this vote today will not haunt the Democrats in nominations to come?

    Turn about is always the name of any political game. Notice the repression of voters by republican governors.. Seems that is ok with all including the media which has not said a thing one way or the other. But then, many owners of the media are backing republicans.
