Democrats Finally Off the Filibuster on Executive Nominees

Republicans filibustering seemingly every second to obstruct the Obama administration’s agenda has gotten under Democrats’ skin at last.

In his “Difference Makers” segment, Stephen Colbert introduces us to the man who will keep America safe from surveillance drones—or at the very least, Deer Trail, Colo.
