    Surely, the mere threat of a change to the rules would have cowed the Republicans into being more agreeable. As it did when Democrats threatened to filibuster Bush's appointments.

    Perhaps Reid and McConnell could have come to some sort of "gentleman's agreement" over the whole thing. After all, isn't that what politics is supposed to be about? I harken to those halcyon days when Reagan and Tip O'Neil did something together that sorta worked out.

    I ask Harry Reid: where's the leadership? And by that I mean, why isn't the leader of the Democratic party doing more to assist the Republicans in their efforts?
