  •  If nothing else this will put a spotlight (5+ / 0-)

    on the next measure that is filibustered.  How soon that occurs and what it is for will make a big difference, but when it does occur it will be an opportunity to bring bloody hell down on the Democrats who held out - and I'm talking about you, Feinstein & Boxer - and continue to press our from a post-election issue to a pre-primary one.  The change in just public perception that this year has brought, and the victory no matter how small for now, has created the climate for a major explosion at the next sign of obstruction instead of the normal shrug of cynicism that nothing can be done.  We're on the right path.
