Opinari - Latin term for Opinion. Opinari.net is just what it seems: a cornucopia of rants, raves and poignant soliloquy.

Now that the Senate has 55 Republican seats, the Northeastern Republicans Olympia Snowe, Susan Collins, and Lincoln Chafee, who always seemed to stand in the way of the GOP agenda, have been rendered much less useful to the majority. Even if liberal-in-conservative's clothing Arlen Specter, and maverick John McCain have a fit of party disloyalty, that will leave 50 votes, with Vice President Dick Cheney present to break any ties. This could mean wonders for the advancement of Republican initiatives.

Of course, there is still a requirement of 60 votes to overcome a filibuster, the favorite tactic of the minority party... or, perhaps that option will not be around much longer. If S. Res 138 is ever agreed upon, that will pretty much eliminate any obstructionism the Democratic Party can muster. I'll be interested to see where this resolution goes.
