    Well written diary - with a gender issue.  

    Part way down you name 9 Democratic senators

    So far the only Democratic Senators that haven't publicly signed onto Udall's filibuster reform proposal are Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.).  Newly elected Senators Mazie Hirono (D. HI) and Heidi Heitkamp (D. ND) also need to give the specifics on which filibuster reform proposals they support.  If any of these men are your Senator, please urge them to get behind Udall's call for real filibuster reform:
    and miss the fact that four of the nine are women.   We have worked too hard at getting women elected to congress to then  think of them as more of the guys.

    I am from New Hampshire - where our entire delegation to Washington are women.
