Morning Newsdome: Repub financial-reform filibuster finally over after their beauty sleep was threatened

>> Republicans have finally ended their financial-reform filibuster after three Democratic attempts and a final push for an all-night session. All this means is that the GOP will allow debate to begin. It all sounds so mature. (Time)

>> President Obama warned there is a stubborn "conservative" judicial activism in spite of lawmaker's decisions. This comes before he makes his second nominee to the Supreme Court. If the candidate is liberal and stubborn, is that better? (the Huffington Post)

>> Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik of Tucson, Ariz., refuses to comply with the state's immigration law, calling it "unnecessary" and "racist." However, the law allows that he can be sued for not complying. John McCain is watching. (Gawker)

>> AriZona Iced Tea wants everyone to know that they're based out of Long Island, not the state that just passed the immigration law, so don't boycott them pretty please! Also, no relation to the Tea Party. (the New York Times)

>> And finally: Five times as much oil as previously thought could be leaking from the BP oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Try to cover that up, BP. (BBC)
