Mushroom Clouds

It appears likely that Frist will begin debate on one of the filibustered judicial nominees tomorrow, paving the way for the nuclear option to be deployed soon after.

Olympia Snowe will most likely stand against it and the KJ/MS urges Collins to do the same. The BDN worries that they might both cave on this or other issues as Bush uses the closure of Maine military bases to enact political blackmail. It should be an interesting week.

For all your nuclear updates, keep an eye on DailyKos. (Here's a good post to start with).
