“The nuclear option was not what the Founders had in mind. It will poison Washington,” he said.

Of course, that was when Republicans had control of the Senate and the White House.

Dick Morris added:

The practical implication of this coup is that we now are moving more and more toward a parliamentary system in the U.S. rather than one based on checks and balances as our forefathers set up. We are nearing an elected dictatorship where the president can do what he wants with a compliant Senate willing to confirm judges who grant him the power to do so, Constitution or not.

This is what “fundamental transformation” is all about…
