    Amen.

    There's one good thing I see here. Sounds like Gillibrand's bill started out by asking for prosecutors for more than just rape and sexual assault.  That's good and Democrats should be aggressive about beginning a negotiation or a legislative battle by asking than more than they're willing to settle for.

    In this way, Gillibrand has left herself a fallback position that is still a good one.  Would like to see more of that with Democrats.
