    More on the deal

    Well, the Washington Post is sure -- and wants you to be sure -- that the fight over the legitimacy of the judicial filibuster is over and the Democrats have won. ("With the Senate filibuster dispute behind it, the White House is bracing....") With that, it lists the potential nominees President Bush could send into the 35-vote Minority of Death:
    Among those most often mentioned by insiders are Judges J. Michael Luttig and J. Harvie Wilkinson III of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit; John G. Roberts of the D.C. Circuit; Michael W. McConnell of the 10th Circuit; Emilio M. Garza of the 5th Circuit; former solicitor general Theodore B. Olsen; and former deputy attorney general Larry D. Thompson.
    Meanwhile, The Union-Leader, the conservative daily in the key presidential primary state, takes Frist to the woodshed.

    The filibuster's honorable history is in the arena of controversial legislation. Its use against judicial nominations, at any level, is virtually unprecedented and utterly illegitimate.
