  •  They need to filibuster the final bill (0+ / 0-)

    Delaying with amendments is good while it lasts, but the final bill IS going to come to a vote.  We have absolutely no chance of getting any Republican, or Lieberman, or J.Rockefeller, to vote for immunity-stripping.  NONE.
    BEST case is we get 49, NOT the 51 we need.  But we only need 41 to filibuster
    THE WHOLE bill.  That would require Sen.Obama to change his mind.

    I say that the way they do that is by filing as a ticket for Pres.&VP in CT and WI.
    Dodd has already run for President and lost this year so maybe it should be Feingold for Pres. and Dodd for VP.   THEY COULD get on the ballot in CT and WI.   And after they do, they could tell people, "You can't afford to split your votes between Obama and us, because then McCain would win.  You have to ALL vote FOR US.  If we carry our 2 states then the election winds up in the House, and we can NEGOTIATE about this."

    "You can't nice these people to death."-- John Edwards
