No input from Democrats on Supreme Court nominees?

I'm way out of my element pondering about this filibuster stuff, but in my naivete, it seems like the obvious reason the Republicans want to end judicial filibusters has little or nothing to do with the ten out of two hundred or so judicial nominations that Democrats have blocked on lower court nominations, and everything to do with the Republicans being able to make nominations for the two or three likely supreme court vacancies during the next four years without having to make choices that have bipartisan appeal.

Is that the case?
