Feinstein: Roberts not 'filabuster-able'
"Do I believe this is a filibuster-able nominee? The answer would be no, not at this time I don't," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, a strong abortion-rights supporter and a Democratic member of the Judiciary Committee.


Several of the seven GOP members of the so-called "Gang of 14" who brokered a deal over judicial filibusters indicated they thought a filibuster against Roberts would be unwarranted. Most have already praised Roberts, and their support would make it almost impossible for Democrats to carry out a filibuster.


And here's an interesting note from the same article:

Senators also may hold closed hearings if there is confidential information to be discussed, Specter warned. Roberts' confidential FBI file may be stored in the Capitol's fourth floor intelligence briefing rooms to keep media leaks to a minimum, Specter added.

11. Beginning?
She has a long and sordid history of selling out....

Better to get her out of the Senate and into the Governor's mansion, where she'll do far less harm....

3. If she is just going to lay down and die over this nomination
she might as well change her party affiliation to Republican :shrug:.

4. He's not filabusterable if we all accept that.
But if we work with MoveOn and PFAW and the other groups to raise a big stink, he will look more and more filabusterable every minute.

5. Well there it is
Maybe Democrats can change the tide during the hearings by bringing out damning evidence about Roberts.

7. Feinstein should be doing her homework
and finding out about this guy before she opens her mouth again. I guess they gave her lots of kool-aide at that State Dinner the other night.
