In Response to Re: The senate approve the nuclear option.:
While I agree that something needed to be done to reform the filabuster, I don't believe this was a wise move. Some day the Republicans will be back in the majority and then the Democrats will be regretting this move.
The 'hidden' filabuster should have never been allowed. If a Senator was not willing to stand up in front and defend his opinion he should never have run for the office in the first place.

As usual, things are not perfect, but if we had had a Senate that wan't so obstrusive and that constantly lacked the cooperation to anything that the Democrats had put infront of them, perhaps we wouldn't have seen this happen.
But now, something has. and yes, what is good for the goose is good for the gander, when things change they can do the same thing.
