Setting the Stage

As Simon notes in a comment below, the final countdown clock on the nuclear option began ticking today, as Senate Republicans officially filed a motion to invoke cloture on the nomination of Priscilla Owen. See this article by Carl Hulse for the New York Times or this from ABC News on the events of the day.

I'm taking a day off tomorrow (Saturday) and will be away from the computer, but Sunday I will be back with a vengeance. The moment to watch on Sunday morning, of course, will be Howard Dean's appearance on "Meet the Press" - there's definitely some news-making potential there!

Of course if anything big happens tomorrow, feel free to keep each other updated via the comments.
