Assuming you want to use the fillibuster on future Democratic nominees, which as a matter of principle I do not, how could you reconcile that wish with the knowledge that the media/Dems will bash your future use of it?
The two things mentioned in the context given here do not mesh.
I understand the spirit but lament the lack of thinking through the consequences of the actions.
Plus, the time to do this, if need be, would be far away from midterm elections. Impeachment was very close to the '98 elections. The time was now. If we need to do it later, it will only be worse.
