I, here in the cold light of morning as opposed to the electrifying atmosphere of the filibuster as it was in progress, still think it was a good thing, by the way. According to a recent poll cited by Reason, plenty of people are concerned about drones and the abuse of power. There's hope yet.
Here, take a look at 3 things we can take away from the filibuster. In fact, it yields the Quote of the Day:
The filibuster succeeded precisely because it wasn't a cheap partisan ploy but because the substance under discussion - why won't the president of the United States, his attorney general, and his nominee to head the CIA explain their views on limits to their power? - transcends anything so banal or ephemeral as party affiliation or ideological score-settling.
