I'm getting this off Twitter, but @kerrypicket reported it.
Fox still has it underway.
I don't really understand how we know it's failed when people are still voting but then again I don't understand a lot of things, like Ashley Judd's visage bouffi.
"Failing cloture" would mean Hagel is blocked, as the vote cannot then proceed to an actual vote on the merits.
I'm gaining confidence in this report because McCain is talking all cocky and pointing out the Democrats filibustered John Tower in 1989.
Cochrane, Johann and who else?
I don’t remember if Tower was actually filibustered, but I clearly remember that he was treated disgracefully by the RATs. That, and the treatment of Robert Bork, shocked me into the realization of how evil the left really is.
If he passes cloture, and they will keep trying until he does. the confirmation vote would be about 95-5
By the way, Cochrane is mine (Mississippi) and I called him, to no avail).
He’s a huge RINO, fossil incumbent, porker slug, anyway.
CSPAN live, nothing announced yet. Eveyones just milling around waiting. However I expect you’re right. This vote was just for show. They’ll vote again after the 10 day recess. Hagel twists slowly in the wind.
Never heard of him before, but he clearly needs to spend more time with his family.
Cavuto reports Hagel “missed by one” whatever that means.
“like Ashley Judd’s visage bouffi?”
Ashley Judd’s fat face?
CSPAN-2 still showing vote underway.
Vote is 58=40
Let me know when we have a roll call. It is worth making this jag-off squirm just a little.
58Y - 40N, cloture fails.
Who voted “0bama”?
Reid is now crying about Chuckies treatment
CSPAN-2 ... Reid says they will vote all over again a week from next Tuesday. He then goes on to complain, blah, blah, blah.
Hagel said the U.S. Department of State was an adjunct of the Israeli foreign ministers office, according to a contemporaneous report of the event.
Republican political consultant and Hagel supporter George Ajjan wrote about the March 2, 2007, speech on his website the following day, writing a description point by point through some of the more important elements of his speech.
Hagel has now officially recieved a vote of no confidence.
I just heard McCain on the radio saying that next week he deserves an up-or-down vote. This is all for show. There’s no intention to really stop him.
