No, not too much. New rule until Bush is gone: if you want to continue debate (by failing to agree to move to a vote), then you must debate - nights, weekends, holidays. The Senate will not adjourn until Bush is gone - preventing recess appointments. This includes all bills where there is a 50 vote majority on test votes to proceed.

Then I'd add (after Tim Johnson returns to the Senate from his medical recovery): if the Repubs adopt a filibuster everything approach, the filibuster itself may be set aside (as the Repubs threatened to do when they had the majority).
