Beyond Nuclear?

While I often disagree with Chief Justice Rehnquist, I wholeheartedly applaud his statements in his year-end report. In it, he argues eloquently as to why those who rail against "activist judges" are just plain wrong (and their complaints as old as the republic). He is also concerned with recent Congressional moves to limit the jurisdiction of the Court, and seems worried about life appointments being called into question. I hadn't heard that last suggestion. Yet. If tweaking the filibuster is "nuclear", are there those who are plotting to go beyond nuclear? God save the Supreme Court of the US!
