The Coming War in the Senate

GOP May Target Use of Filibuster
Senate Democrats Want To Retain the Right to Block Judicial Nominees

Okay, never mind that George Bush has gotten all but 10 of his 229 judicial nominations past the Senate. This 96% passage rate exceeds even the record of Ronald Reagan. But of course anything less than 100% ideological harmony won't do. So, Dr. Frist is preparing to kill the democratic tradition of the filabuster. An idea that will come back to haunt the Republican's and will potentially lead to a meltdown of business in the Senate (not that that's a bad thing!).

If course we here at EIE have been talking about this for months now.
