Harry Reid, who has been disappointing on filibuster reform so far, seems to be changing his mind. And Chuck Schumer plans to hold hearings in the Senate Rules Committee. I continue to think that filibuster reform, as the legislative face of a broader campaign targeting Republican obstructionism, is a winning issue for Democrats in November: but only if there’s a focused and noisy campaign about it.
And speaking of November, does a six-point Democratic advantage in the generic Congressional ballot (44-38) sound like a harbinger of a Republican wave election to you? Me neither.
