  •  I figure Reid used some "tactical" argument (0+ / 0-)

    on these senators to get them to flip. If the "deal" somehow lets him still change the Senate filibuster rules even after that's supposed to be impossible, it might make some sense. More rope to justify big changes. Jed seems to think he can do that, but never explains how or why. If Reid/Dems can still make it happen, the real turning point will be when the Reps go all out to kill Cordray's appointment by filibuster.

    If they can't make it happen, if it's just yet another move to preserve the Senate's pomposity, then the petition should be to depose Reid.
