    which I believe will diminish in a new Congress. Mainly because I think we've got Democratic unity now but will finding it fraying in the Senate come next year.

    Especially Landrieu. And I think she brings quite a few people with her should nothing get struck before the end of the year.

    I think the president has the right strategy to strike now to minimize the overall damage.

      Next year we have both a bigger and better Dem caucus. And hopefully a weakened filibuster. Why do you think unity is going to be harder?

      Hell, right now Joe Lieberman is a Senator. You're worrying about future unity?
