13 hours. That's how long it took for a previously little-known Texas senator to become an international sensation. That she didn't quite make it to midnight mattered very little in the end. By the time Sen. Donna Campbell called the third point of order, Davis' filibuster had moved beyond being simple parliamentary procedure. It became the stuff of lore – a highlight in the long tradition of Texans drawing lines in the sand. Something tells us we'll never have to say "let her speak" again.
