There has not been a true filibuster in over 25 years. A filibuster cannot occur until after cloture has been filed and the legislation has actually earned 60 votes to stop debate. Only when those two items are in the books can a filibuster begin. A filibuster is only succesful if a "motion to table" is successful.
