    Elizabeth Warren picked up a number of votes from people who liked Scott Brown personally but did not want Senate Majority Leader Mitch McChinless. That rationale will disappear in the special election.

    We don't have a filibuster proof majority now but we have a little room to lose a few red-state Democratic Senator's votes and still have the 51 we will need (if the filibuster changes hold up) to confirm judges. Each Senate seat changes the numbers by 2: one less for us and one more for them. 52 to 48 becomes 51 to 49. Too damn close for comfort.

    Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.
