    is one Republican who will be willing to cut off debate before a vote.  And they may have trouble finding that person.

    But let's not kid ourselves.  The Dems do have 50 votes for this thing; in fact, they probably have 59 votes.  (Lieberman and Ben Nelson are always wild cards, but I think they'll come around.)  The whole question is whether or not all 41 Republicans will support a filibuster.
