  •  Absolutely true about the SOTU (none)
    ...even this timing has been orchestrated by Bushco. Don't let it happen!

    They are counting on this to add some credibility to his anticipated "dead cat bounce". They're building up to it. Notice that even Karl "not quite indicted" Rove, long hidden from public view, has been trotted back out onto the main stage in the past week.


    •  Remember, the Math is Doable. (4.00)
      The burden's on Frist now to reach 60.

      With No votes or even abstentions on cloture, Frist has to come up with 60 YEA votes Monday from people who want to move the nomination forward.  If Dems are less than committed, or vote "present" on the motion, Frist will come up short. So we don't need to find as many as 41 votes 'no' on this, it's Frist who needs to round up 60 yeses. Don't let anyone give you the numbers wrong -- especially the media! Link is to diary on this strategy, UPDATED.  

      Wyden, Reid, Feinstein, Durbin have now switched their positions on cloture and announced they will vote No on cloture also!  That was the news by Friday evening.

      It is not too late to RECommend the linked math strategy diary, if you haven't already.
