Further on the Senate deal

I just heard Randi Rhodes explain, with pleasure, that the deal was
better than the alternative, because there were enough votes to invoke
cloture. I think the 'real' story there is that there were enough
votes to invoke closure. In other words, the maneuver was a choice
between one unnecessary retreat and another. The Democrats should
have let Frist push the nuclear button.
