Countdown to nuclear detonation begins

Well...the clock is now officially rolling. As mentioned here the other day...it'll come due on Tuesday, now that a cloiture motion has been officially filed. The Dems (assuming they remain united) will win that vote. Then Senator Frist can detonate the nuclear option and we can count the votes. Right now...it's anybody's guess. There could be a deal on Monday that will ensure that the nuclear vote fails. Six Republicans could join with the united Democrats to defeat the vote. Or it succeeds and the GOP might (or might not) pay the price next year in the midterm elections. I guess we'll find out on Tuesday.
