Will Democrats use similar tactics on Republicans in the Senate?

Republicans have effectively used the filibuster to halt Democrats ambitions as it pertains to the Non-Binding Resolution against the surge, the President is moving forward on anyway. When roles were reversed and on an equally important topic, the vote out of committee of the Supreme Court nominees, the Republicans threatened to use the Nuclear option to stop the Democrats. The nuclear option was to eliminate from the Senate Rules the use of the filibuster to stop any actions by only one Senator opposing the action.

I can't wait to see if the Democrats now threaten to use the same tactics, should they be denied any votes of funding restrictions for the war, etc. Remember my earlier post, Democrats must be willing to go all the way if they are to succeed in changing the direction of this war before 2008. I can hear the whinning of a few Senators already.
