* No one cares about filibuster reform. While that previous sentence is an exaggeration, itís only a slight one. The people who do care about filibuster reform are liberal activists and liberal donors. They believe that the rules as they currently stand are a perversion of democracy and must be fundamentally altered. For the rest of the country, however, the filibuster barely registers ó much less the attempts to reform it. Doubt it? Check out this 2010 Pew poll where just 26 percent of people knew it took 60 votes to break a filibuster. Given that lack of care/concern among the general public, it made little sense for Reid to risk poisoning the Senate well with bigger fights on sequestration and funding the government looming.
