Well, this was totally expected

Hot Air: "Report: Senate Dems preparing to filibuster Trump’s SCOTUS nominee — no matter who it is."

Democrats are still butt-hurt that they were hoisted by their own petard on the topic of Supreme Court nominations made in an election year.  I suspect their paramount interest in re-establishing a "full" Court will fall by the wayside.

This seems foolish to me, at least in the context of replacing one conservative Justice (Scalia) with another.  Better to keep your powder dry and save the real battle for the seat that will swing power in the Court.  But nobody said the Democrats operate on logic.
