    1. We had the votes in the electorate. This was a golden issue for us and we pissed it away.

    2. You seem to forget that we also pissed away the filibuster itself as part of the "deal." The very first time we try to invoke the "extraordinary" language, we'll be right back here again. Isn't that completely obvious to anyone who has been paying attention to the thugs the last 15 years?

    •  Not sure (none)
      While I'm not certain that Reid did the right thing by accpeting this deal, I don't think that we could have taken this to the voters. The filibuster is vitally important to people who know a great deal about the Senate, but his isn't a concrete issue for non-ideologues and casual politcal observers.
