      There's nothing more to the Harry Reid and filibuster reform story. He was never interested in eliminating the filibuster, doing the Harkin proposal of gradually lowering the amount of votes needed or anything like that. He pretended he was so he could get everything he wanted with McConnell when the time came for a deal. And he got everything he wanted.
