    it doesn't have to live with this Congress.  History should also be aware that the founding fathers never mentioned the filibuster and half of the presidential appointments filibustered in the history of the US were Obama's.

    I'm sorry to see it go, I think it's a great tool for a minority party to use to extract some concessions from the majority, assuming both parties act in good faith and are reasonably sane.  But there's no question it's been abused by Republicans and no longer serves a useful purpose.

    I don't know what's been trickling down, but it hasn't been pleasant---N. Pelosi
