However, I don't believe this is really a filibuster.
Looks like he gave up quickly.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/18/AR2007071800482.html?nav=rss_politicsI love how Reid complains about Senate cloture rules when he's in the majority, but when he was minority leader he loved to hide behind them, effictivly blocking all sorts of things that 51+ senators and a majority of Americans support. In their euphoria after winning the election, I think they failed to realize that a shakey 51-49 majority is far from a mandate.
I, too, found his sudden switch of positions on cloture pretty funny. The up-or-down vote debate all over again.
