Senators meeting on Obama nominees ends without deal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Senators met privately for more than three hours on Monday but failed to reach an agreement to avert a showdown over Republicans' power to block President Barack Obama's executive-branch nominees with procedural hurdles known as filibusters.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid still left open the possibility of stripping Republicans of their filibuster power.

But following the meeting, Reid told reporters: "We've had a very good conversation. The conversation is going to continue tonight." He added that votes on the Obama nominations were still scheduled for Tuesday.
