There are several rumors out there that Janice Brown, one of the 3 nominees to get an up or down vote, may lose her vote in the full Senate. Although Frist and co. would publicly wring their hands about Democrats voting against the daughter of a sharecropper, they would also be able to crow that allowing an up or down vote does not take away from the minority's ability to defeat an unacceptable nominee.

But like I said, it is just a rumor.
