    I think they need to reform how it is abused but in 2012 most likely the republicans will take over the senate and we may need the filibuster especially if somehow a republican gets to be president.

    •  Yes the Republicans will keep the fillibuster (0+ / 0-)

      because they know the Democrats won't use it the way Republicans do.

    •  Look up Truman, 1946. That was a bigger loss (0+ / 0-)

      of Dem seats than this on. So Dewey won in 1948? And Repubs increased their control?

      Uh uh. I think this year is more like 46 than '94.

      I'm asking you to believe. Not in my ability to bring about real change in Washington ... I'm asking you to believe in yours. Barack Obama
