  •  While I don't see them forming thier own party... (none)
    ...although it is possible, I can see them deciding...well...everything.  If the 14 can stay together and vote as a block (a big if), they will have total power.  These 14 senators will then, all by themselves, decide yeah or nay on every piece of legislation or nominee that comes down the pike from now on.  That's big power-especially considering some of these people are being attacked by the base and leadership of thier respective parties, which means, prior to this, they lacked power.  Senators like to have power.
