No more secret holds?

Finally some good news from The Village. At least one Senator is worth her salary.
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) said Saturday she's secured the votes to force a rules change ending the Senate's practice of secret holds.
Long overdue. Only one obstacle to go now.
Whether Reid schedules a vote this year will be key to ending the practice. Bond and Brownback will both leave the Senate at the end of their terms next year, as will Sen. Judd Gregg (N.H.), another Republican in support of changing the rule on secret holds.
Harry claims to support the measure so hoping he'll schedule it forthwith. Lord knows since the GOP handed him a dream nutcase opponent in his reelection bid, there's not much other political pressure to put on him at the moment.
