Comments on the all-night Senate debate over the Reed-Levin amendment; Tuesday, PM:

Watching intermittently. Some highlights:

Mary Landrieu adamantly pounding the lectern asserting that this is "not a stunt." This is no "Hollywood" show. This is serious. This right before her aide places a made-for-television poster with the American flag in the background and the slogan "Let Us Vote" displayed prominently on an easel over her left shoulder. Very persuasive.

Granted, Joe Lieberman plays to all my biases, but he is a great man. With his haircut and fleshy face, he looks more like a senator from the golden age of the Senate than any other member. And, more often than not, he lives up to his visual.

More to come...
