Over at Tigerhawk ( - there is a summary of the arguments for the nostalgia option on filibusters - which would require the minority to take the floor and hold it. The images of filibusters come from two notions. First, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, when Jimmy Stewart held up the Senate in a fanciful demonstration. Second, with the old crackers who opposed civil rights. Either comparison would not help the dems in thier mission. Let's let them talk and talk and talk. More people should see the quality of leadership that holds up a black sharecroppers daughter - who is criticized for voting on a "radical" decision with a concurring vote by that old conservative on the California Supreme Court - Stanley Mosk. C-Span could be a wonderful medium to make the issue clearer.
