NO A CHANCE to filibuster Judicial nominations

There is NOT A CHANCE to filibuster Judicial nominations...learn why.

I was fortunate to be convalescing a bout of food poisoning that kept me home from work and which gave me a rare chance to listen to C-Span, live, this morning.

Professor Smith below, explains the procedural Senate rule that will allow the Republicans to circumvent any attempts by Democrats to filibuster Federal or Supreme court nominations.

I know it and Democrats know it. All we'll be seeing is an elaborate production with judicial nominations sparring.

Below is a link to the video clip of this presentation on C-Span. The segment I point to starts at about the 22 1/2 min mark. In case you want a quicker reference to the 2 minute segment, below is an audio clip excerpt I prepared:

//PlayAudio-123.com/play.asp?m=175879&f=NIAWIQ&ps=13&p=1 (2 minutes)


Steven Smith, Co-Author of "Politics or Principle? Filibustering in the U.S. Senate" and Political Science Professor at Washington University in Stl Louis, discusses the history of U.S. Senate filibusters.

5/11/2005: WASHINGTON, DC: 45 min.
