  •  Generational change in the Senate (6+ / 0-)

    Levin, Harkin, Rockefeller - that's the #3, #4, and #5 Democrats by seniority, and the Chairs of the Armed Services, HELP, and Commerce committees.

    Filibuster reform, 2013 - woulda, coulda, shoulda.

      I'm kind of excited because Mary Landrieu's seniority within the Democratic caucus is going to go way up, and she'll probably get a much better committee chairmanship next time around if she wins reelection and Democrats hold the Senate.
