My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


The "Nuclear Option" In Reach

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist says he has the 51 votes needed to change Senate rules and make it easier for Republicans to overcome Democratic filibusters against President Bush's judicial nominees, but he hopes such a change won't be necessary.

Perhaps the good doctor has a little more backbone than we'e gotten used to seeing from majority leaders. This would be a very good thing, if for no other reason than the threat of it could force the Dems to do their job. But they know that not only will they be unable to meet Ralph Nees' demands, but in the process they will look like (and only because they are) losers. Having this happen to them would be devestating--lose, and disappoint the base.

If he pulls this off, I might be inclined to push Frist to the front of the 2008 pack.
