40. When the real people discover how much damage Alito will do
They will want to know how come we didn't take a stronger stand to protect them from this judge. Leadership is about making unpopular decisions once in a while. And this one stand, for a filibuster, would go a long way in demonstrating real leadership.

The DLC issued the statement not to filibuster. Who more than Hillary is affiliated with the DLC?
