    But of course support will immediately die then, because the principal objection to it among liberals is that liberal legislation isn't being passed.

    If the Senate is 51+ Repubs next year, watch how there are zero more diaries about how terrible it is on here, and in fact diaries like 'Dems must filibuster blah legislation' will start showing up.

      unless they predict that the Dems will avoid filibustering. (Granted, the DC Dems are stupid enough to require 60 votes for Dem bills and allow 51 votes for Rep bills.)

      •  Just like they did from 2002 to 2006! (1+ / 0-)
