1. The fact that the filibuster is currently done in secret, says it all

If a senator feels strongly enough about a particular piece of legislation, let them show it in public, instead of behind closed doors, as is currently done. Itís a weasel move.

4. An excellent touch!

Even just making that point in public and on the record would be fantastic. Ds need to seize PR moments when they arise!
