2. Saw that this morning. I think it's one of three things: They have dirt, or think they're
going to find dirt (obviously they are still obsessively searching) to justify a filibuster. 2--they want to delay through the end of February (to weaken Obama's/Hagel's/Dems' resolve and find more dirt) or 3--they want to do some last minute horse-trading and deals before Harry calls the vote. Blunt had previously said he would not filibuster, so I don't know if this was a planned move to surprise Dems, or something new has come up, or if just the threat of a filibuster is intended to give these crying babies something they want in return. Edit to add, I see Rand Paul is holding up Brennan's nomination because of drones or something.
