    Reid certainly SHOULD know far better than me on how to get things done, but it is now clear that he had no plan whatsoever in 09 and was completely out of touch in'10. Now he doesn't think that 40 senators can consume a 24 hour clock.

    This is the sort of thing when leaders get too insulated.

      done back in the day (from 20s until 60s). Politicians love to talk. Still, it may limit the number of filibusters on minor bills.
