  •  She won't filibuster if her people think (2+ / 0-)

    it is "career suicide". But just because people support a PO does not mean that filibustering it would end the career of an incumbent senator. Voters aren't that simple to predict.

    I'm in the pro-Obama wing of the Democratic Party.

    •  It doesn't mean that for sure. (3+ / 0-)

      But most senators aren't taking chances with sixty percent and high profile issues which, if no bill passes, will remain pocketbook matters through election day.  Not when the decision is to tell the president, majority of senate, and house to go F themselves, minority of senate rules.


      Voting for a filibuster on the health care reform bill is a vote for higher deficits and 44,000 deaths/year due to lack of insurance.
