These people have no style. No style at all. They should all be ashamed of themselves, but I am sure they are not.

"The interesting part is who voted yes--- Clinton."

As usual, the Clintons are thinking of themselves, and nobody else. Did you see her smirking yesterday as she talked about needing checks and balances for "whoever becomes President"?

She doesn't want to go too strongly on the record for filibustering nominees when she expects to be picking them from the Oval office in 3 years.

You'll see that on every female and minority nominee. Watch closely. She won't alienate the "core".

You are surprised by this?

She is running for President, she saw what happend to Tom Thumb and she knows that is is a losing proposition.

Inouye is listed as Not Voting, which, for cloture, has the same exact effect as a "NO" vote.

Inouye is a signatory to the "compromise" issued yesterday, where the signatories pledged to for "FOR" cloture.

Inouye broke the agreement.

Well, you know how it goes: The Clintons have no permanent principles or permanent beliefs - only permanent interests.

One has to wonder if Inouye was even there. He probably slinked away so he wouldn't have to officially go on record.

Yeah, I guess I am at that.

When did the Democrats ever give two toots in a bucket about minority rights when they ran the Senate for decades? Answer: NEVER. The GOP got scammed and it was obviousd all the way through - and they still let the Dems eat their lunch.

Lincoln of AR is another "moderate" who voted with the far left extremes on this one. What a joke these people are.

But doesn't this show how either party interprets an agreement. No matter your current opinion of Republicans, they still band together in a show of good faith. We are the party of a hand shake agreement. The democrats are still activist, far left, untrustworthy weasels.....and they are getting worse.

Sad to say but the Dems are better at this stuff than the Republicans who must labor under the burden of a negative media.

I was not eager for the change in the rules because someday the Dems will have the Senate and the White House and a Republican filibuster would be needed. But the compromise was a result of the Dems controlling the public argument and six Republicans getting cold feet and one looking to become President.

Once the line broke Frist and the President had no choice but to agree. But what they should be doing now is laying the groundwork for a public relations argument in favor of the rules change next Congress. It took Limbaugh and the guys at Powerline and elsewhere a day to find those Democratic quotes in favor of changing the rules from ten years ago. Now the Reps have to plan how to control the argument and publicize their facts to more than Rush's audience.

Not surprised. It is predictable for a number of reasons. It is interesting though.

I'm sure when this issue is dead one way or the other Senator Clinton will have a lot to say and we will learn how instrumental she was to the outcome.

Republicans are the party of religious fundamentalism. In the United States is called values, in the mid-east it's called terrorism...

Mr. Moderator, could we please let this troll stick around? It's so much fun to watch neurotic libs sputter around like this.

Actually, they have not yet officially voted on her approval. I believe that many of these 26 will vote against her when the time comes.

"I thought I heard Dodd say AYE on the vote?"

I think you are right. I definitely heard Sarbanes announced as voting Yes, but later in the roll call I heard him listed as voting No. Apparently Senators can announce a vote and then change it as long as votes are still being taken.
