After the Senate shot down Sen. Patrick's attempt to destroy the 2/3ds rule at the beginning of session, will Dewhurst say "f*ck the senators" and bypass the rule to allow a vote on the voter ID bill?
Sen. Ellis and the 10 other Ds have enough votes to prevent the bill from being heard on the Senate floor. But Dewhurst is now receiving public pressure from loony Leo Berman and the chairwoman of the Republican Party of Texas to suspend the rule and bring the bill to the floor.
So what'll it be, Dewhurst? Does being governor in 2010 mean more than the faith and support of the Senators - who overwhelmingly support the rule? Who thinks we already know the answer to that question?
