Gore Sing Same Tune on Filibusters

What makes it so dangerous for our country is their willingness to do serious damage to our American democracy in order to satisfy their lust for one-party domination of all three branches of government. They seek nothing less than absolute power.
Note to the former Vice President: It's a freaking rule change! You know, these things sort of happen from time to time. We ended slavery, invented a right to abortion and restructured the Senate to allow for direct election by the People, among other things.

It's all hot air and partisan rhetoric. It may not be ideal that Bush is picking judges "too conservative" for your tastes, but it's certainly legal and does nothing to "damage democracy" because a majority of senators can still defeat any nomination. There's no procedure more fair than majority-rule.
