  •  That's what I assume, too (none)
    But I'd like to be assured

    •  I'm surprised (none)
      This news isn't frontpaged.

      It means one less cloture vote.

      I know it's not how we would prefer a cloture motion to fail, and I won't say anything about this guy "deserving it" or any such, but it definitely affects the cloture vote today.

      Unless he gets out of hospital and makes it for the vote.  Which he has 1.5 hours to do.  He's not said to be in life threatened condition.  I suspect he'll be patched up and sent to the senate to "yea" cloture.

      But he definitely needs to be present to vote for cloture.  No proxy voting here.
