Revisiting the Filibuster

by Matthew J. Franck

Katrina vanden Heuvel, in today’s Washington Post, rails against the filibuster as an instrument of minority frustration of the democratic will.  For a little perspective on this, see my Public Discourse essay “In Defense of the Filibuster” from eleven months ago.

And why do I have the feeling that vanden Heuvel will drop all criticism of the filibuster as soon as the Democrats are in the minority again in the Senate, which they very well may be after the next election?
