    I don't think the filibuster should be permanently ended. After all we fought FOR the filibuster when we were in the minority! Remember the big campaign against ending it a few years back? Ending the filibuster then was called the "nuclear option".

    However, I do think it should be weakened. 60 is rather absurd and it's very rare to get 60 Senators all from the same party. 56 or 55 might be more reasonable. That way there is still some protection, but the degree to which a minority can block progress is more limited then.

    The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them. - Albert Einstein.
