The hyper-partisan environment in which we find ourselves has made this change in the executive nominee filibuster necessary. Obama has faced 27 filibusters of nominees in his five years. That is more than all other presidents combined. That should say something about the current environment. Republicans will probably take control of the senate in 2014 and they will be glad then that this change was made.
