Yeah? What's the compromise between abusing the rules and playing by them? Only abusing them when you're really, really, really upset?

To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, here's my compromise: We win, they lose.

You just know that ratbas*ard John McCain has his
hand in this.

Bad news for the repubs, and all of us.

This "compromise" had better not mean continued filibustering in the future. What I'm hoping is that the Dems realized they would lose if they attempted to filibuster Owen and, having realized this, decided looking (late last week) for a way to be able to say they "reached compromise" rather than "got horsewhipped."

Maybe the "compromise" is that they will let Owen get approved, and then filibuster then next nominee.

To compromise with the democrats means they will betray your good will at election time as they did President Bush's father over taxes.

As predicted the GOP caves. Whatever it is ANY compromise is a defeat for our side.

This just may turn the Senate over in 06.

Hopefully, it is nothing more than they all agree to vote for cloture and proceed under regular order to vote on the Owen nomination, thereby preserving the fiction that they can filibuster later on if they so choose. If it is something we give up that should not be given up, if we snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the Repubs will rue the day.

Unless the Dems stand down on this and all other future judicial filibusters, I don't see how this can be a "win" for the GOP. They should not allow the Dems the ability to filibuster future nominations, especially Supreme Ct. nominations.

Yeah with real statesmen like Howard Dean representing the democrats I can see how compromise would be the right call here.

Republican and Democrat Senators will come together and explain, they say that there will be votes on "as many current nominees as possible" and the filibuster will only be used in "extraordinary" cases.

If they agree to not go nuclear in the future, they are going to enrage the base.

If it's not the RNC is going to have a lot of trouble fund raising over the next couple of years.

Here's my compromise: Instead of all 45 Demagogic Party senators having to kiss Frist's backside on the steps of the Capitol, we'll allow Harry Reid alone to do it on their behalf. Really now, what kind of 'compromise' do you make between upholding 214 years of Senate tradition and rules vs. allowing the further trashing of said tradition and rules? The demagogues will try to limit the number of judicial careers and reputations they trash, so long as they can have an absolute veto on all possible Bush nominations to the USSC? Yeah, that's a very reasonable compromise.....

FNC....Major Garrot.....Dems will retain filibuster in the future for 'extraordinary circumstances'.

GOP will get votes for nominees (number not determined).

This soesn't sound good.....looks like a cave to me.

So let me get this straight.

Instead of a minority of 41 making the decisions we're going to have a minority of 12 making the decisions.

Folks, that's moving in the wrong direction.
