Chilled To The Bone

Published by at 6:52 pm under All General Discussions,Filibuster Showdown

I think the Coalition of the Chillin’ is about to be completely and permanently vindicated. The Commissar has the lowdown on Joe Biden’s prediction there is not sufficient support to pull off a filibuster over Alito. Here is some of Biden’s comments on Meet The Press today:

A key Democrat said on Sunday that he expects the full Republican-led Senate to vote on U.S. Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito without the threat of a Democratic filibuster.

If Alito goes through without a filibuster I think we can all call this issue over until 2006. Two supreme court nominations without the filibuster would pretty much indicate there is little chance of one in the near future.

Captain Ed also sees an end to the threat by democrats.
