Biden says Scalito filibuster unlikely

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

JOHN'S ADDITION TO THE POST: Biden is an idiot. I heard this live this morning and just about spewed my coffee. It's going to be very interesting when Biden runs again for president in 2008 (my prediction) and fails to even secure the vote of any Democrats. The man needs to shut the f up and start defending his own party once in a while, or he can go become a Republican for all I care. Of course, this is the same Joe Biden who still supports the quagmire in Iraq, so go figure. [/JOHN]

Is it a little early to decide that there won't be a filibuster? Is this the decision of the Dems...or just Biden pontificating? The right wingers were unabashed that they did not want an up-or-down vote on Harriet:

A Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee said Sunday he believes Samuel Alito will get an up-or-down vote on his Supreme Court bid.

"We should commit," said Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., minimizing prospects of a Senate filibuster that would prevent final action on President Bush's choice to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

"I think the probability is that will happen," Biden said on ABC's "This Week."
