I agree in principle...

But I think Cruz's filibuster is seen by most people as the campaign stunt that it is. Rand's filibuster, on the other hand, brought an important issue to public attention, made the libertarian position mainstream (even GOP leadership sided with him) and forced the Obama administration to make a key clarification on an important legal issue. What, exactly, is Cruz accomplishing?
