I'm no Kerry fan but we need to get the right perception on the air tonight.  The right is going to try to kill the filibuster we need to get to every poll that is out there to frame the discussion and the public perception of the filibuster.  Pass this on.

Why do you think John Kerry wants to filibuster Samuel Alito?  

Conviction      41%  

Politics      59%  

UPDATE push this up now it's at 61% politics to 39% is that what we want being announced on Lou Dobbs tonight? Front page "Vote to get on with it?" Should the Senate give Alito an up-or-down vote? * 17538 responses Yes, he has been thoroughly examined and the outcome is certain anyway. Get on with it. 56% No, he would be a dangerous addition to the court. Any means possible, including a filibuster, is justified to stop his nomination. 44%

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
