Well there's "talk" of removing the filibuster because:
1. BO and the Dems were elected & given mandate to fix things.
2. GOP talking of same old tactics.- we'll see.
3. We'll repeat Term 1 if they file as many filibusters as before.
4. Something HAS to change - after all there WAS an election !! mad

Don't know if it'll happen- it's a pretty serious change but I wouldn't be surprised to see a compromise... i.e. keep filibuster but limited or after so long they vote !!
GOP might make a deal cause if they don't then, they're done in the Senate !!

What do you think ??
