Update [2005-5-24 9:9:13 by susanhbu]: Senate now voting to end debate on Priscilla Owen.

From the Los Angeles Times, “Senate Deal Reached on Filibusters“:

Sen. Russell D. Feingold (D-Wis.) said the agreement was “not a good deal.”

“Democrats should have stood together firmly against the bullying tactics of the Republican leadership abusing their power as they control both houses of Congress and the White House,” he said. “Confirming unacceptable judicial nominations is simply a green light for the Bush administration to send more nominees who lack the judicial temperament or record to serve in these lifetime positions.”

The Senate may vote on Priscilla Owen as early as today.
