...said Senator-elect Ken Salazar, Democrat from Colorado, on "Face the Nation" Sunday, in response to Bill Frist's comments on getting rid of the filibuster rule.

The lines are being drawn and the wagons are circling on this issue. Harry Reid vowed earlier today to "tie the Senate in knots" if they try to change the law. It reminds me of a time when republicans blocked over sixty of Bill Clinton's judicial nominations without a vote, but hey.. the Dems only blocked ten of Bush's nominees out of over 200. Let's change two hundred years of legislation.
