No chance...
I heard on Olbermann's show just now, and I've read it elsewhere, that there's a good chance Frist doesn't have the votes for the "nuclear option" even though he's just announced it will all go down on Tuesday at 2 pm. They say the head-counting is not yielding results on the GOP side, and the tradition of the Senate will lead some of those long-serving Republican Senators to vote agaisnt their party. I don't believe it for a second. We would need 6 of them to cross lines. No chance. Anyone even considering it is getting a serious arm-twist. Even Hagel, who really has the most to gain by defeating Frist, since he eyes the White House also, is going to fall in line.

Our victory - if there is to be one - will come in the aftermath of Frist's inevitable success. He may be sorry. That's all we have left.
