    That's what we can expect. Dire warnings and proclamations how vital this bill is to national security. In a coordinated effort with McConnell and Mukasey as well as select Senators they'll argue that something needs to pass without delay. That something will include retroactive immunity, though it may be altered in its wording only (a la Feinstein), as to appear to have been a result of a compromise. Sorry to be so pessimistic, but if you followed the speeches yesterday, I don't think there's a chance of sustaining any kind of filibuster effort against the leadership (same party, nonetheless).
