Is There More To The Filibuster Compromise Story?


James Kuhnhenn, of Knight Ridder’s Washington Bureau, reports on Sen. Trent Lott’s secretive participation (limited though it may have been) in the deal between 7 Republicans and 7 Democrats on filibusters and the “nuclear option.”

Patterico reports on a segment on Fox News that indicates two of the seven Republicans were sent to join the negotiations to ensure the best deal possible.

Put those two together and I’m not sure what you’ve got, but it’s certainly information that didn’t get covered in the aftermath of the agreement.
