    I believe the filibuster can play an important role in protecting the most vital interests of the minority party. BUT the rules for conducting a filibuster must insure filibuster speeches are closely restricted to the matter at hand. To facilitate this, perhaps only the member who wishes the filibuster should be allowed to speak and should be required to speak continuously with only toilet breaks of specified duration. Straying from the subject should be grounds for terminating the filibuster.
