Salazar Fighting for Filibuster Compromise
Democratic Sen. Ken Salazar of Colorado had attended at least 13 private meetings over the previous 24 hours with senators trying to craft a deal, a spokesman said. [Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.] Graham and Salazar, along with Sens. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., John McCain, R-Ariz., Mark Pryor, D-Ark., and others, were working to try and find six Republicans and six Democrats to block Frist from banning judicial filibusters and block Reid from filibustering all of Bush's controversial judicial nominees.The compromise would allow an up or down vote on most of the nominees the Democrats believe are too extremist for lifetime appointments to the federal bench. Here's a guide to the showdown if you haven't been following along. If you'd like to tell Salazar what you think, today is the day. I just got through and left a voicemail. It was easy. His number is (202) 224-5852.
