Two Predictions

Prediction One: Democrats will filibuster Sandra Day O'Connor's replacement.

Prediction Two: Democrats will reconsider filibustering Supreme Court nominations when Roe v. Wade is overturned by a vote of 2-1.

Update: Eugene Volokh informs me in email that the Supremes require six members to establish a quorum. That rule is set in the United States Code (specifically, 28 USC § 1). Congress could change that rule - but an attempt would get shot down faster than Bill Gates at a Linux convention.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if the Dems ever engaged in a filibuster campaign to bring the Court below quorum.
