    •  Menendez and Obama (none)
      You may have more up to date info, but I was told by Menendez' office late afternoon yesterday that he is on board with the filibuster.  There is a post at democrats.com that Jim Lehrer announced that Obama is supporting it.  I wasn't able to reach anyone at his office to verify.
    •  Feinstein's on board (4.00)
      Naturally, it was my call that tipped the balance -- I was especially forceful in reciting my ZIP code when they asked.  ;-)
      •  Yes, your letter and my diary turned Feinstein. (none)
        I was way past mincing words.

        To be uncomfortably frank, Feinstein's local claim to fame is walking in on SF mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk right after they had been shot dead by a deranged anti-gay Republican - who walked right by her office - and receiving a promotion after they died.  In the Senate she has repeatedly proven she is the last person you want watching your back in a crisis.  If we let her, she'll prove it again this week.

        Contact Feinstein's office [DC and multiple CA phone#s] and point out that ... she jumped the gun a week ago but we'll respect her more if she changes her mind now, with more information.  If she's not capable of it, we'll be looking for Democrats to run against her.

        Feinstein can vote for extended debate and become a hero; or she can betray us, vote for cloture, and go down in history as the weakest Democrat - the one who compromised away the last of her party's power, certain the ominous footsteps everyone else was hearing were benign.

        Thanks to our help, she's more of a hero.
        These successes, where we publicly turn Senators and Congressfolk around, are critical evidence that democracy does work, so let's be sure to celebrate them and keep pushing!

    •  Collins is a YES on Alito (none)
      Chafee is a YES on cloture undecided on Alito.  (Announced today).
    •  Hollywood Oz gave me a 1 for listing emails (4.00)
      what an ass
