  •  Reid Didn't Surrender to Bullies (5+ / 0-)

    Reid's goal was to keep a strong filibuster to that repugs can stop progressive legislation and so that Dems won't have to take a public position by voting against the substance of a bill. It's better if repugs kill it procedurally. Stalling cabinet nominations isn't what Reid wanted but it's a necessary evil from his perspective.
