Democrats had no choice about going nuclear, but they shouldn't be eager to add more majority-imposed reforms
Use of the “nuclear option” sends a clear message about President Obama’s second term.
Why today’s action -- despite the danger it poses if/when the Senate or the White House goes back to Republican control -- was necessary.
Instead of constant confrontation, how about a deal to strengthen the Senate? Here's one reform program.
Expect Harry Reid to go nuclear if Republicans don't back down.
The coming showdown over judicial nominations.
Executive branch nominations are being confirmed -- but questions still remain about the deal going forward.
It's time for him to join with Democrats -- and offer Republicans a way to disarm the nukes.
Republicans won't play by informal norms, and so rules change is required.
Reformers are moving towards different rules for different situations. That's progress.
