Senator Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has drawn a line in the sand with his filibuster. He will stop if and when Barack Obama or Eric Holder clarify the White House drone policy regarding regarding the targeting of American citizens on American soil.
The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin summed it up this way:
The WH is now trapped.. If they clarify they make Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) the hero, if they don’t they are held up to ridicule..

Another possibility is that Obama simply refuses to answer, the media puts Paul on ignore, and Paul runs out of gas.
The stakes are planted now. There’s going to be a loser in this.
