What is wrong w/ Frist? This all would have been old news had they voted to end filibusters first thing in January. (assuming they had the votes then which they probably did)
Compromising at all w/ dems on this will only drag this on and on and on and on and on and on for the next 3 1/2 years.
This reminds me of when their leader Saddam was found in a spider hole in the ground and came out saying: "I want to negotiate."
