    and old bulls get listened to. Reid's style, like that of other leaders before him, is to get all his people on board. If some of his most senior members have concerns then he'll do his best to meet those concerns. This is just how it works... and this part is part of the design... unlike the modern day filibuster which has no part in a properly working Senate.
