If my idea succeeded, Majority leaders would never abrogate their responsibility to hold hearings and votes again. They'd have to actually vote down nominees, which is indeed possible, lest the minority take over the process. If my idea failed, then the Democrats lose nothing that's not already lost. Refusing to hold hearings and a vote violates the spirit of the Constitution, if not the letter. The Democrats should try and play that game too, if the alternative is just ceding everything to the Republicans.
