Filibuster fight

Senate Republican leaders (from right) Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., walk to a closed-door meeting in the Old Senate Chamber for a showdown between Republican and Democratic leaders over presidential nominees that have been blocked by a GOP filibuster, at the Capitol in Washington on Monday. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid insisted in advance that Republicans permit yes-or-no confirmation votes on all seven of the nominees at issue. If they won't, he declared, Democrats will change the Senate's rules to strip them of their ability to delay.
