Blast from the past

I'm posting this New York Times editorial from 2013 in full anticipation they'll be doing a 180-degree about-face any day now:
Republicans warned that the rule change could haunt the Democrats if they lost the White House and the Senate. But the Constitution gives presidents the right to nominate top officials in their administration and name judges, and it says nothing about the ability of a Senate minority to stop them. (The practice barely existed before the 1970s.) From now on, voters will have to understand that presidents are likely to get their way on nominations if their party controls the Senate.
Yeah, voters, get to understanding.

Extra - Fox News: "Slate switches from defense of Electoral College to calling it a tool of white supremacy."
