Spoke Reid's office. No news as to whether he will support filibuster even without 41 votes. But I told the nice woman that the blogs are very active about this right now and want a filibuster with or without the votes to avoid cloture.
Nice, intelligent woman. She even grokked me when I told her that Reid's "conscience vote" decision was malarkey, and that it's time to exercise party discipline.
In the end, I told her, we want filibuster even without 41 votes, but we REALLY want a filibuster WITH 41 votes, and are looking to Reid for that.
