That’s what happens when you (in the collective) get tired of faking it! (Oh, and also when you are so sure that you’re replacement for the outgoing is a shoe-in . . . )

I can’t believe I actually agree with Tom Daschle on something.

Daschle must be on his death bed or something, telling the truth for the first time in a half century.

“Daschle added, Then we lowered the threshold from 67 to 60.”
The lowering of the threshold can be laid directly at the feet of Nelson Rockefeller. He set out to wreck the filibuster, and largely, he did.
Rockefeller was, well, a Rockefeller Republican. That was back when the term meant something.

Can you imagine needing 67 votes now??

The Dems are certainly responsible, but not in the sense of that Daschle is saying it. The Dems in the Senate simply decided that they would support NOTHING that helps the Republicans, or even permits Trump to run the country...so that is the problem - not tactics, but HYPER-partisanism on the part of the Democrats.
