Enforcing the Constitution by eliminating fillibustering on
judiciary nominees......the Constitution doesn't contain
*ANYTHING* about its practice or lack of same. IOWs, the
fillibustering of judiciary nominees has *NEVER* been used before
and the Senate is therefore free to outlaw the practice during a
simple procedural change. In fact, fillibustering has largely been
used to halt equal rights legislation for black folks. Pretty
shameful stuff.
