Check out my live blogging of the Jersey guys (Lautenberg and Menendez) down below. But first:
I heard from someone on DU that his staff was still taking a tally on the filibuster as he was on the floor between 2:40 and 3:00 pm.
The original part of this thread was posted at 1 o’clock about John Kerry, but it has morphed into something completely different. I include that stuff on top just for continuity.—————————————————
John Kerry was just on the floor from 12:40 to 1:00.
He asked for 15 more minutes, but was granted it only at 2:00 as they were on an hourly minority/majority basis.
So if Kerry takes 15 minutes at 2:00, whoever goes before Lautenberg will go until 2:35 and then Lautenberg will go from 2:35 to 2:55, leaving Menendez only 5 minutes befor the majority gets their hour back.
Do you think that will be enough time for Menendez to make his announcement? I don’t.
I’m starting to think Kerry is really just a hog. John in DC and Matt Stoller may be right. Kerry is using the Netroots for his ’08 aspirations.
