So it looks like the battle over filibusters has ended... At least for now, but I don't like it. Yes the dems get to keep the right to filibuster judges, but (so far) I don't see where this deal stops the republicans from trying to block filibusters in the future.
...but Pat Buchanan is throwing a fit, so it can't be all bad for the Dems.
Maybe it was a true compromise; where neither side won. Maybe.
