Did we really win?

05/24/05

The higher the bar, the longer it takes the mob to climb over it. That's why I love the filibuster. End it? Heavens no. I'd like to improve it. A unanimous vote requirement for cloture, or at the bare minimum 7/8, sounds about right. And while we're at it, let's require 90% for passage of legislation and unanimous consent to override a presidential veto. You might think I'd be happy, then, to hear of the 'compromise' hammered out by 'moderate' Republicans and Democrats to avoid the 'nuclear option' and save the filibuster per se at the sacrifice of a few particular instances of it. But I'm not so sure the deal is cause for celebration...
