  •  It will never happen like that (0+ / 0-)

    We don't need 50 or 60 Senators . . . to support benchmarks and a deadline for starting to withdraw combat troops. We need only 40!

    It will never come to that. I can't imagine Leader Reid coming up with any plan that involving a close cloture vote that relied upon the Republicans.

      Reid has promised all along to fund this war.  He'll deliver on that promise.  Whatever it takes.

      Of course, he'll work hard to squash a filibuster before it gets started.  Mainly to avoid him getting in this embarrassing position you describe.  

      But, Reid will deliver on his promise to fund this war for another year, and he'll do whatever it takes to deliver on that.  If that means he's with the Republicans on a cloture vote, then that's where he'll be.

      Democrats, the other War Party.
