We've also got a new and improved version of our embedded live stream player, below.

Oh yes, there will be more discussion about filibuster reform. This time, I'll address the all-too-common "slippery slope" argument. So if you've had that one thrown at you, I'll provide some answers worth incorporating into your responses, beyond the perfectly serviceable, "Duh!"

Plus, we'll be holding our tongues tomorrow, as it's clearly too soon to politicize the latest mass shooting.

We're LIVE at 9 a.m. ET with Kagro in the Morning, thanks to

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.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:

    Politico/Steve Lombardo:

    The Republican brand problem

    We did a survey of more than 1,200 U.S. voters (conducted by our research arm Edelman Berland), showing them a series of 14 words and phrases (positive brand attributes) and asking them to tell us which party – Democrat or Republican – the phrases better described. The results are stunning. The Democratic party “won” on 13 of 14 attributes. Even more importantly, they won 12 of 14 among independents. And on some of the attributes it wasn’t all that close. The Democratic party emerges as far stronger than the GOP on several key attributes, including: “offers a hopeful vision of the future,” “cares about people like me,” “clearly explains how its actions will benefit me,” “understands issues facing the middle class,” “works to bring about change,” “honest and ethical” and “smart and innovative.”

    Election Monitor: 5 Days to Go and Trend Model Says Romney Wins Popular Vote

    With five days to go before the election, it is now pretty clear that -- barring a destabilizing external event -- Mitt Romney will likely win the national popular vote for president. The only remaining question is whether the president's Midwest firewall will hold and give him an Electoral College victory.

    Obama Wins Almost 50% Republicans on Tax Mandate in Poll Bloomberg/Selzer

    President Barack Obama won the public argument over taxes so decisively that almost half of Republicans now say he has an election mandate to raise rates on the rich.
    Majorities of about 2-to-1 also read the election results as an endorsement of Obama’s pledge to protect Social Security and Medicare benefits, according to a Bloomberg National Poll of 1,000 adults conducted Dec. 7-10.
    Poll: Voters want soft fiscal cliff landing, but offer no net McClatchey/Marist
    Americans clearly want Washington to solve its looming budget crisis, and they clearly reject almost every option to do that, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll.

    The only option that voters endorse, by a ratio of 3-to-2, is to raise taxes on the wealthy.

    Obama's approval still higher than GOP leaders' for his handling of the situation

    By a better than 2-to-1 margin, registered voters disapprove than approve of House Speaker John Boehner’s performance during the fiscal cliff talks, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll – a negative rating due in large part to the lack of uniform support for him among Republicans.
    In contrast, Democrats overwhelmingly approve of the way President Obama is handling negotiations, even as registered voters split evenly on how the incumbent is handling the matter.

  •  It's so (sniff) touching (0+ / 0-)

    Seeing all the concern on the Republican side to preserve the filibuster as currently constituted, and protect the rights of the minority.

    That's when the minority in question is them and their fierce defense of the wealthiest, most well-protected and -defended people ever to walk the planet. When the minority includes people who are actually, you know, vulnerable (particularly to the predations of the wealthy minority), well . . . Let them eat cuts.
