Bipartisan Politics Redux Senate Style

I've mentioned before that when the Democrats reach across the aisle, if they get their hands back they'd better count their fingers. On the Iraq Surge Resolution they Dems reached across to John Warner (R) VA to put together a milder version of their opposition resolution. All the Republicans (including Lieberman) except Coleman of Minnesota and Collins of Maine joined together to block that Resolution from the Floor.

I would say that the Senate Floor may not see many bills that BushCo doesn't like if the Democrats maintain anything remotely like principles. The Republicans don't have much fear of playing hardball, so the Democrats might want to know what game is being played.
