Is that a spine I see?

It looks like Frist is ready to play hard ball instead of rolling over and playing dead. I'm glad to see that the Dems' compromise was evidence that they were bluffing.

But Frist, in a rare news conference conducted on the Senate floor, said he would not accept any deal that keeps his Republican majority from confirming judicial nominees that have been approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"Are we going to step back from that principle? The answer to that is no," Frist said.

Maybe, after so many years, the fact that Republicans are in the majority is finally sinking in. I hope this trend continues.
