    But Reid will say he got a swear on his mothers grave promise from McConnell this time to not abuse the cloture system.  

    McConnell and GOP will scream bloody murder if any changes are made because now is supposed to be a time or reaching out and coming together and the Dems in the Senate poisoned that well by forcing through rule changes that will take power from the minority.  

    So they have to go whole hog if they go at all and I think there are too many old dogs that are squeamish on our side.  And the GOP knows this which is why there will be no negotiated agreement.
