  •  We can't dictate rules changes to Senators. (1+ / 0-)

    They take them very, very personally. It would be awfully foolish of us to approach the campaign that way.

    What they need convincing of, and support to do, is that there's a real mechanism available to them to force an open discussion about rules change, and push one through.

    We can suggest what changes they might consider, but there's no way they'll stand for us dictating changes to them. That shuts the conversation down faster than anything else.

    So we're talking now about making rules change possible, and juggling ideas. The rest is up to them.
