    John McCain, Filibuster Reform Opponents Offering Counterproposal

    Unexpectedly, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), whose fellow Senate class of 2006 colleagues are generally supportive of significant filibuster reform, also emerged from Kyl's office following the meeting. Asked by HuffPost if he was part of the bipartisan group, he said simply: "I'm part of the Senate, yes."
    Some stats may need tweaking, but to me, seems that Cardin opposed dramatic reform. I do remember him being supportive in the past, maybe when the abuse was rampant. Maybe some of the older bulls changed his mind.

    As for Mikulski, I've gotten emailed response from her office in the past and she does support reform.
