Debate on judicial filibusters begins.
I’m listening to C-SPAN as the Senate begins debate on the nomination of Priscilla Owens – which is clearly the debate on whether to require up or down votes on appellate and Supreme Court nominees. Majority Leader Frist is doing well so far, and I suspect he will win. I don't think he would proceed now if he didn't have the votes.
Since this is a matter of justice and the rule of law, I am also praying.
