    They hint and threaten and rattle their sabers as long as nothing can be done.  When the chance to reform the filibuster presents itself, they go soft and settle for a gentlemen's agreement.  

    They WANT the filibuster to halt popular progressive legislation.  They WANT the GOP to be able to halt this legislation on the sly, with a mere whisper in Reid's ear.  That way the dems can portray themselves as being, well, "democrats", while actually serving the same corporate interests as republicans.
