Filibuster Deal and John McCain

Where in the Constitution does it talk about quid pro quo?

Where in the Constitution does it talk about memorandums of understanding?

Where in the Constitution does it even talk about filibusters?

McCain has blindly chosen the myth of Senate tradition over the Constitution. Clearly, he has been in the Senate far too long.

Where I believe McCain got tripped up here is the deep held feeling he has. McCain believes that anything Republicans really like must be bad and he let those feelings totally blind him here.

On principal, I cannot support anything John McCain stands for. Crafting a quid pro quo memorandum of understanding with a super small minority (to decide an issue--- 14 out of 100 senators deciding the issue) is perhaps the lowmark of integrity and intellect. He is afraid to vote on tough issues and stepped all over the Constitution in order to please his own fear.
