    It needs to be 45. Make them convince a few Democrats to go along.

    Filibuster reform now. No more Gentleman's agreements.

        they ought to be willing to set aside everything else.  And if it's that important to enough of their constituents, it'll help get them re-elected.

        Uh ... and if it's that important to the Koch brothers, or whoever bankrolls their campaigns, they'll be rolling in money at the next election.  But we saw how far lots of money got them last time.

        We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
