The Senate’s top Democrat on Tuesday said he is considering a filibuster of two of President Bush’s judicial nominees, saying one may have been involved in the administration’s policy on torture and the other ruled in a case in which he had a clear conflict of interest.

“The answer is yes, a possible filibuster, of course,” Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., told reporters in answer to a question about the nomination of White House aide Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.
