Even if he is finally confirmed, the decorated war veteran may be too weakened to have much influence

Thanks Cal for the link to the article by Ryu Spaeth. He may survive but I bet Senator Harry Reid is kicking himself in the butt for not pushing for stronger filibuster rule. The fact that this is the first time that a Cabinet appointment has been filibustered doesn't say much for the GOP. Read and noted.

Not really a filibuster when they are not in session. So without the time off, the delay probably would have been a day or two. Weird choice President Obama made, had to know it would be very contentious.

Noted, thanks Cal. The Daily Show had a nice piece on this...stating that McShame's doing this in retribution against Hagel. All makes perfect sense. I just hate that Congress looks more like a high school campus than a group of educated lawmakers.

Thanks Cal - I hope he can - when Parties and Lobbyists go after one man so strongly - he must be the right man for the job - no yes man or puppet here

I hope the Republicans never recover from what they did to this man!
