Suppose that Republicans have at least 51 and no more than 55 Senators next year, and that a Supreme Court justice gets hit by a bus. Would you expect every GOP Senator to vote against cloture on Barack Obama's nominee, with the penalty being a certain primary challenge? If so, can you picture any compromise that most conservatives could live with that would allow Obama to put someone on the Court? How do you see such a confrontation playing out?
