Reid: Deal Could Bring Bipartisanship

What a crock. Bipartisanship ? Is that why they're Forcing a delay on the Bolton final vote ? Is that why they refuse to participate on the Medicaid Commission ?
"Americans are sick and tired of getting caught in the crossfire of partisan sniping," Reid said Thursday in a speech at the National Press Club. "Americans want us to put the commonsense center ahead of nonsense."

Within hours of the speech, Reid and other Democrats voted to block a final confirmation vote on John R. Bolton's nomination as U.N. ambassador, and Majority Leader Bill Frist fired back.

"Some 72 hours after hailing an agreement that sought to end partisan filibusters, the Democrats have launched yet another partisan filibuster," he said in a written statement. "Actions speak volumes, and so does inaction. Given the chance to advance the cause of comity in the Senate, the Democrats have chosen partisan confrontation over cooperation. And rather than working to advance America's agenda and act by voting on the floor, the Democrats keep stepping on the brake."

It seems to me that the partisan sniper is Reid.
"John Bolton, the very first issue we turned to, we got what looks to me like a filibuster," Frist said. "It certainly sounds like a filibuster ... it quacks like a filibuster."

I love that quote.
