Why? Because in the Senate you need to have 60 votes to invoke cloture, or end debate.

Not anymore - I think Dingy Harry set the precedent last week by invoking the nuh-cleer option, no?

The spine of the Republican's to actually follow suit is a whole 'nother matter.

That is what I was thinking this past week with Reid’s latest maneuver. He will regret the day, I hope.
