    Years and years of evidence demonstrating how the Dems cave over and over. I want so badly to be wrong.  I hope I'm wrong. But even now, up to this very point that appears like Reid has the upper hand (as he always had) and is seemingly fed up with the GOP bullshit, I still have no faith in his convictions.

    Because that's what our Party does.  This is what they do.  Over and over again.

      It's simplistic and poor reasoning.  Lazy reasoning.

        You're not clapping loud enough. Really give your clapping some gusto and you might stir some of us from our tepid, miserable, slumber while we wait for some backbones to form in the Senate.

        A bit hairy in the legs, but hey, you're probably European.

      Pulling defeat from the jaws of victory.  Wanna bet that if he does change the filibuster rule he won't hold the Republicans to it more than once or twice?  Harry might find a way to split the baby, but you can be guaranteed he'll do it so half heartedly that it'll be the Dems holding a dead baby.
