    democracy in the Senate. Personally, I'd like to see the filibuster killed altogether.

    Just my two cents...I think the filibuster obscures for many voters the reality that elections have consequences. I further believe that if the filibuster were elminated altogether a truly democratic Senate would more clearly allow voters to see the consequences of their choices in action. I may be overly optimistic, but I can hope.
