U.S. Senate. Of course, the rules she had to follow were much stricter.

Besides, he had an agreement with Reid that he (Cruz) would talk until Reid told him (Cruz) that he could not talk anymore; and Reid had told him noon would be that time. Not only that, but he was filibustering a bill that would defund Obamacare; and Cruz wants to defund Obamcare.

So, Cruz's vow to talk until he could talk no longer was a bit of doubly deceptive drama.

Of course, the US Senate will also accept a "notice of intent to filibuster." But, that does not yield hours of TV camera face time.
