Prof. Stras has, like practically everyone else, a piece on the Alito nomination on NRO today, urging against the use of the filibuster to block a Supreme Court nomination. He basically argues that using the filibuster in this area is completely unprecedented, but also that invoking the “nuclear option” to stop it would be a bad step as well, and that ultimately threats of filibusters and nuclear options would lead to far less qualified nominees. As for me, I can’t say I oppose that last part; I might need a job someday.
