    What if Dems hold the Senate and the White House and win the House?

    Without filibuster reform, Republicans will continue to block all progress in the Senate and reinforce the notion of the do-nothing Congress.

    With reform, Dems could actually get something accomplished and start showing voters that Congress and government can work.

      to productively participate in this debate.

      I have a hard time envisioning a "reward" given the political and ideological leanings of the large majority of the Senate.

      What I see is a split along the lines of 50% crazy, 25% stupid, 23% not so bad and 2% pretty good.
