Time will be controlled by Lugar & Biden, split equally between both.

I just saw Coleman on the floor railing the democrats on judges. He'll probably show up later. It's a five hour debate before the vote.

VOINOVICH GETS TO EXPLAIN HIMSELF? Oh, Lord.

They are going to run this debate like they do in the Senate.

The Dems will get 2 1/2 hours and the Reps will get 2 1/2 hours with Lugar handling reps, and Biden calling on dems.

Rep 1 hours, then dems 1 hour, etc. No other motions or subjects will be allowed.

Biden is already correcting Lugar and wanting to change things---Bidens wants to speak right after Lugar instead of following the rules that Lugar set forth....

Lugar telling Biden that he wants to keep HIS schedule, that he will speak and then Voinivich...wants that...

Biden saying he doesn't want to bog people down in regulations, but he wants it to be noted that this is NOT the way it is done on the floor and wants it noted that if Biden is ever CHairman again, HE might make up his own rules also. So, Biden is already picking fights over minutiae---he also said he would be more mad except that Voinivich is speaking second? Curious.....

Voinovich gets an hour?

That should give him sufficient time to tell us where the he!! he's been when these hearings have taken place.

CSPAN2 McConnell is rambling about the judicial nominations.


How many more speeches are they going to make???? They have been making the same speeches for 3 years now. Nothing new. They said it all in that fiasco all-nighter last year.

Yet they continue on and on, more speech-ifying, more rambling. And none of it adds anything new.

DO SOMETHING, ALREADY!!! Enough of the speech-ifying.

I noticed on c-span 2 that they will be introducing new bills today---

Could be interesting because I read last night that McCain and Kennedy are supposed to introduce a bill about immigration and border control today....watch for THAT.

A bill co-sponsored by McCain and Kennedy oughta be a lollapalooza!

Lugar has stated that he has not done ANYTHING unethical to deny him this nomination.

Then he highlighted how Bolton helped with the talks with Libya on coming clean on nuclear material.

Lugar is telling everyone that President Bush, having won the election has the right to name who he wants to his cabinet.

BTW, they are on quorum call on C-span 2----they should picture-in-picture this while they are in any quorum call today!

Bolton will go to the UN to reform the institution.

If he is successful, the credibility of the UN may improve with the US population.

A lot of people worked tirelessly to investigate allegations brought up at the last meeting.

All of these allegations have been proven unsubstantiated.

The good news about only being able to listen to it is, you don't have to look at Biden's cheesy grin!!!

Lugar is now telling everyone that the people that are holding this up and pressing for more and more interviews are senators who never have intended to vote for Bolton anyway. So basically Lugar is saying that Biden and buds have been wasting time and money because they wouldn't vote for Bolton, no matter what.

I'm sure you're right. The liberal newspapers have been saying this nomination was about Bush's foreign policy.
