    ..loathe to give up power.

    Senators have a disincentive for getting rid of the anti-majoritarian rule: It gives them more power.
    But hopefully at this point Reid and other Dems have seen that when one party has lost even the pretense of comity, there remains no loss of power reforming/ limiting/eliminating the filibuster.
