    But wouldn't you imagine Obama did this in consultation with Reid?  Call me naive, but  I'm hopeful this means that Reid has determined he has the votes to make the filibuster change.

      If Obama isn't breaking Reid's arms to change the rules, he should be ashamed.

          And as for it being unjustified, I'd say any sentence next to one about Obama with "Reid," "hopeful" and "filibuster" in it deserves some sarcasm.
