Judicial debate on C-SPAN2

I'm eating lunch at my desk so I can watch the judicial debate on C-SPAN2.

George Allen is giving his floor speech now. The interesting sub-battle here is between Sen. Frist and Sen. Allen (and maybe a few more). Both are fighting to identify themselves with the views of 2008 primary voters.

I like the strategy of choosing Judge Owen and Judge Rogers Brown as the test nominees.

UPDATE
Diane Feinstein just mentioned Strom Thurmond's epic filibuster as an example of a minority viewpoint protecting itself through filibuster. However, she didn't mention exactly what it was he was filibustering. Wonder why?
