Re: Achievements Of The Filibuster


If you enjoyed the Kerry-led filibuster effort of Alito’s nomination as much as I did, you’ll like this essay, “Swiss Miss,” by Michael Crowley of The New Republic. As Crowley observes, “This week’s filibuster fizzle is just the latest example of how Kerry has begun to adopt a new, fighting-mad persona–and to alienate colleagues who think he’s just positioning himself for 2008 at their expense.”
