has an interesting post
about Cheney's responsibilities as President of the Senate and what a ruling on the constitutionalityof the fillibuster would mean, especially since it is almost certainly not going to be reviewed by the courts.
Can Cheney make a ruling that judicial (but not other) fillibusters are unconstitutional without giving reasons? Will he even be challenged on it (preferrably before) by journalists or Democrats? Does partisan opportunity really trump any constitutional obligations?
If you don't know the answer to the last question, you haven't been paying attention.
