Its about damn time Mr Majority Leader!
A spokesman for Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) tells me that the senator is filing cloture on Harold Koh, the president’s nominee for State Department Legal Adviser, “right now.”
Credit Dave Weigel for breaking the story but honestly why in the hell did it take this long? It is ridiculous that any and everything the Democrats want to do is predicated on whether or not we can file cloture. That has never happened in the history of the Congress and as far as I am concerned one person is responsible, Harry Reid. Its great he finally found his gonads this time but when in the hell will Dawn Johnsen get her day?!
