I believe Frist will get the votes, I just haven't said so here. Or at least I don't think I have. I think the moderates will disappoint us, and they may get 51-49 and not even need Cheney.

I also think there will be no nuclear option next week, but that's only because Frist is waiting for me to go on vacation, the week following. The country and the Constitution are nice and all, but we're talking Hatteras here. I don't miss that for nothin'.

I believe Frist will get the votes

Same logic behind why I think Bolton will squeak through, I suppose, though I meant to say Frist doesn't currently have the votes, else we'd have seen the vote already.

CW says Bush wins both, but at a huge price. The possibility remains, however, for any other combo.

P.S. this AP story's for the head counters:

I wonder if the moderates realize that this is their only chance to stand up to the crazies in the administration? If they cave here, they're screwed--they'll be shoved out of the way for whatever the crazies want to do. I don't want to trivialize battered spouses by making this comparison, but that's really what the moderates resemble right now. If they don't stand up for themselves this time, there won't be a next time.
