Wolf B reporting they may have 70 votes for cloture
Moderate Dems will backlash and vote for cloture. Up or down to take place on Tuesday.

I hope those Dems start looking for new jobs. Grrr.... :mad:

2. That's the inevitability card CNN always plays against Dems.
They've been doing it for a decade now.

4. I'll say it again...
If they were serious about a filibuster, this should've been strategized much earlier.

6. Taken from a post at Kos
Was looking there for some hope...unfortunately found this:

Current standing, basically (none / 0)

Tom Carper (DE) - Will support Cloture. Said he will vote "No" but expects Alito to be confirmed.

Kent Conrad (ND)
Byron Dorgan (ND)

Tim Johnson (SD) - Will vote for Cloture. Will vote for Alito.

Mary Landrieu (LA) - Will vote for Cloture.

Blanche Lincoln (AR)
Mark Pryor (AR) - if CNN is to be believed, will vote for Cloture.

Also call these "Blue State" and pro-choice Republicans:
Lincoln Chafee (RI)
Susan Collins (ME)
Lisa Murkowsky (AK) - Will vote for Cloture
Bob Smith (OR)
Olympia Snowe (ME) - Will vote for Cloture
Ted Stevens (AK) - Will vote for Cloture

No info or point, just an update on data. I would be absolutely shocked to see an (R) oppose cloture; and at this point, we have five (D)s (Johnson, Landrieu, Byrd, Nelson, Pryor) and probably a few others (Salazaar) who will vote for Cloture. The current HotLine estimates 63 votes for Cloture are currently secured.

I stand by my statement that this might be ill-timed, but I admire the effort Sen. Kerry

19. I wonder if the Democrats who are considering voting for cloture
realize that they may be writing their political death warrants, as Democrats anyway? This is it-- the moment of truth. Thank you, John Kerry, for enabling the separation of the sheep from the goats. Likewise, no Republican who votes for cloture should ever be considered a moderate again. Just as the vote on independence was a dividing point in the Continental Congress, this vote will be now a dividing point.

21. Good point MC****
The volumes getting turned up by the Propaganda pushers. This should be no surprise to us by now.

Keep focused and help other friends and family keep focused as well.

Probably, most importantly, SPREAD THE WORD and keep calling.

27. Exactly...
Wolf: "Jack Cafferty, does Kerry really think he can win this filibuster vote? Doesn't he know that the Bush administration has developed a mind control machine that will destroy all his followers?"

Jack: "Leslie, it's time you left The Situation Room and took yer nappy..."

Why does anyone believe ANYTHING Wolf says?! geez...

17. I believe Wolf just as much as I believe CNN generally.

Meaning - not at all.

But I do agree with your implication. This isn't about winning - it is about fighting. They better fight.

AT what point don't they take a stand?? You know.

The most important fight is coming in a few months - how much do they want to keep their jobs?

We have to make that the question.

Joe
