Democratic Senators Speak to the Filibuster
The Senate hearings are live now on C-Span2. Sen. Patrick Leahy is speaking right now. You can watch on the Internet here. Feel free to use the comments to live-blog the action along with your comments.
Think Progress reports that Republican Senator Bill Frist imploded on the Senate Floor today when Sen. Schumer asked him a simple question about a filibuster he participated in five years ago. TP says Frist's tortured response undermines his entire argument for the nuclear option.
I'll be participating in a small conference call with Sen. Chuck Schumer at 12:10 ET. If you have any suggestions for questions to ask him, you can leave them in the comments.
