No Nook-yoo-lar Option. For Now.

So the Republicans won't get to do away with the filibuster. But I fail to see how this is a "victory" for the Democrats.

"We have sent President George Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and the radical right of the Republican party an undeniable message....the abuse of power will not be tolerated."
Of course, the Republicans still get Cruella Owen, William Pryor, and Janice Rogers Brown as judges without opposition from the Democrats, which is exactly what they wanted. So, basically, I guess the real message the Democrats sent the administration was, "Threaten us, and we'll give you whatever you want."
