More Hot Filibuster Action
The issue is now being debated on C-SPAN 2 and will most likely continue for the rest of the week. Leahy just made an impassioned and eloquent speech in defense of the Senate and the filibuster.
Also today, students at Bates are wrapping up their own 24-hour filibuster to protest the nuclear option. They are emulating the work of Princeton students who filibustered for 384 hours last week, first in front of the Frist building on their campus and then in front of the capitol building in Washington.
The Princeton filibuster website has announced that students at Umaine at Orono will begin a mock filibuster on Monday.
