He's darn sure not going to throw his hat in with the 1% of the vote the libertarians bring along. He's already shown that he's smarter than that.

Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
So let me get this straight. According to NPR, Rand said that he doesn't oppose the nomination that he's filibustering and doesn't even expect to stop it. He's doing it to try to get information from the White House about the drone program.
So, essentially, he's holding up a government process that has a known outcome to make a point.
Yep. That's the government way I want my government to work. Oh, wait. No, it's not. I want the government to work together to run the country. Can't happen today with Rand at the dais.
Jim, I believe Brennan has expressed that he believes the use of drones on US soil is okey dokey. And he would be head of the CIA. I'm not sure he has said he will vote for Brennan's confirmation.

I've got Harvey the Wonderdog. He's an 11 year-old yellow Lab with minimal drive so I haven't tested or trialed him. However, he's still helped us recover ducks we've would have otherwise lost when hunting. My wife just put a deposit on a Flat-Coat that was born Superbowl Sunday. We're supposed to pick him up on Good Friday.
My Grandfather ran FT Beagles for years I just loved it. I'm looking to get back into the dog game with this Flat-Coat.
