    Collins isn't committing to break the filibuster.  She's just not committing to support it, either.

    It's not at all established that McConnell is "unable" to hold his caucus together, it's established only that at least one GOP Senator won't sign a letter committing to vote "no" on cloture THIS early.

    I bet it's 55-45 that the GOP fails to hold together on cloture to open floor debate, but 60-40 they hold together on refusing to allow a final up-or-down vote on the bill.  Those are my best guesses.
