    He never intended to get rid of the 60 vote rule.
    This is something to remember for as long as he is around. And not just around in the Senate.

    Here's my suggestion: take the existing organizational framework for reforming the filibuster and broaden the goal a bit.
    Let's go after the old guard in the Senate.
    Let's go for more than a change to the filibuster.
    Let's go for changes in the seniority system in the Senate. We'll settle for real filibuster reform.
    I know - it can't be done. But it CAN be done.
    The truth is it looks like we came pretty close this time.
