    Moyers & Company [#202H] Fighting The Filibuster * President Obama's second inauguration will be a day of celebration, but whether or not he accomplishes his second-term goals depends on what happens the next day - Tuesday, January 22 - on Capitol Hill. That's when the US Senate decides the fate of the filibuster. Once "the world's most deliberative body", the Senate has become a graveyard of democracy where, says Bill Moyers, "grown men and women are zombified in a process no respectable witch doctor would emulate for fear of a malpractice suit."
    The 112th Congress that just ended - the least productive in the record books - ground to a halt as Republicans mounted scores of filibusters to stop bills, nominations, and judicial appointments. As a result, there are more judicial vacancies today than when Barack Obama took his first oath of office. With minimal effort - and hardly a word spoken - a minority of 41 Senators can prevent the legislators from even discussing issues and legislation; all that's needed is a phone call to the cloakroom to bring the Senate to its knees. The filibuster is "a triumph of hypocrisy," Moyers says, because the party in the majority always wants to reform it, until that same party winds up in the minority and wants to keep it.
    On this week's episode Larry Cohen, president of the 700,000-member Communications Workers of America, joins Moyers to make the case for common-sense reform that would bring the Senate back to serving democracy. Cohen is a leader of the Democracy Initiative, a coalition of nearly 100 progressive organizations campaigning to change the filibuster rules. But time is not on their side. Unless the Senate reforms the filibuster on the first day of the new 113th Congress - Tuesday, January 22 - the minority wrecking crew remains in charge.
    * Later in the show, the combativeness of politics gives way to the clarity of poetry, as poet Mart?n Espada joins Bill to examine life through verse. A one-time lawyer and advocate, Espada has published more than 15 books of poems, translations, and essays, including his latest poetry collection, The Trouble Ball.
