I’m no fan of the Gang of 14 pact. But if the next president is a Democrat — or even a not terribly conservative Republican — conservatives may be grateful to still have judicial filibusters. Ideally, qualified judicial nominees put forward by presidents of both parties should be confirmed without regard to exacting philosophical litmus tests. They should at least get an up-or-down vote. But that arrangement can’t work if it is only followed by one side, for the same reasons that unilateral disarmament isn’t the soundest basis for national defense.
