    he's supporting filibuster reform.  I think the nuclear option is now very credible.  The reason Reid got such a good deal last time is because he held fast and made it clear after the deal that this did not mean that reform was off the table. Despite some naysayers, Harry did get all the the nominees agreed on confirmed.  Some were very close and the naysayers were so eager to use that as proof as a bad deal, but they did get confirmed.  Remember, McConnell was practically cut out of the loop.  His stature as Senate GOP leader was diminished significantly, and I think that helped bring him down in the PPP KY poll.
