    I really believe Dems fear a GOP wave in 2 years. The old guard don't want to end the filibuster only to find themselves in the minority in 2 years. The 2014 elections are pretty scary, at least by the numbers, with so many more Democratic seats up for grabs. If we can survive those, then Democratic control will be fairly secure. I would expect 2016 to bring an even bigger Democratic majority. That expectation might remove some of the fear that motivated the hesitation on this vote.
