Clinton to support Alito filibuster

Clinton to support Alito filibuster -- "WASHINGTON -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday announced she'll join potential 2008 presidential rival John Kerry in voting to filibuster against Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito, just as top Democratic leaders predicted the effort is likely doomed.

With three Democratic senators pledging support for Alito, the New Jersey conservative seems virtually assured of being confirmed by the full Senate Monday or Tuesday, party leaders predicted Friday. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters in Washington that 'everyone knows' Senate Democrats couldn't muster the 40 votes needed to support a last-ditch filibuster."

Yes, she is a liberal.
