    it wasn't that the filibuster was being taken away.  bringing back the talking filibuster would have made the Republican bring their crybaby show to the public.

    is a talking filibuster too much effort for the Democrats if they should ever have to do that themselves?  if they are too old and tired then retire, get out of the way and let some young blood in there.

    I'm a blue drop in a red bucket.

      vote in favour of a filibuster.  I.e. , if forty-one didn't publicly in the full light of day announce that they were in favour then cloture would take effect.   Daylight:  the best antiseptic.
