  •  He has better info than any of us... (none)
    have.  I know that he's something of a loner on the Hill, but, unless someone on this thread is a staffer for Reid or Durbin, he knows far more than we ever will.

    Feingold is probably not going to be an enthusiastic filibuster supporter, although I'm sure he'll participate if Reid/Durbin swing the Dem caucus in that direction.  In this interview, it appears that he was merely nose counting.

    If you have an alternative nose count (even one from an off the record source whose identity cannot be given), we'd all love to hear it.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I see things that never were and ask why not?

    •  How about Durbin? (none)
      You think Durbin does? He's the whip. Come on. Feingold doesn't know.

      The SCOTUS is extraordinary.

      •  I thought that I implied that Durbin... (none)
        and Reid would have a much better nose count than Feingold has.  Obviously, the Leader and the Whip BETTER have better nose counts than a mere member who's something of an outsider would be expected to have.

        Since, however, neither Reid nor Durbin have participated in this thread, and since I haven't seen anyone post who appears to have inside info from any of their staff, I'm assuming that Feingold is better informed on this subject that anyone on our thread is.  If someone DOES have such inside info, I will gladly stand corrected.
