Same question as the question for conservatives: 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. I'm sure liberals would all expect an automatic filibuster on any even moderately liberal nominee. Can you picture any compromise that most liberals could live with that would allow Obama to put someone on the Court? How do you see such a confrontation playing out?
