    In between the time Franken was seated and Kennedy's death: 60 seats.  Then there's always reconciliation to bypass the filibuster - how did the HIR law pass in the end again?

    Then there's the fact that 50 Dems + Biden could end the filibuster at any time.

    Then there's the fact that Bush and Frist never whined about needing 60 votes.

    Then it's funny how when Obama and Reid really want something, the supposedly inviolable 60 votes magically drops down to 50 - like on passing telecom immunity and reconfirming Bernanke.
