Frist has a backbone, News at 11


From the Beltway Buzz:

Bill Frist is standing firm against Harry Reid’s offer to hold a vote on a fraction of blocked Bush judicial nominees in return for allowing judicial filibusters of other nominees to continue. Frist said he is sticking with the principle that all nominees deserve an up or down vote on the Senate floor, “Are we going to step back from that principle? The answer to that is no.”

This is great news. The Dems are on the ropes and have no place to go on this issue. It needs to be resolved before the Supreme Court has an opening.

Keep at Bill, you may get some of my respect. To grow even more in my eyes, attend BlogNashville in your home state and allow us to talk with you. It could not hurt your reputation and presidential ambitions.
