U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren "Disappointed" In Filibuster Changes

The Massachusetts Democrat had vowed to join with other Democrats to limit use of the filibuster _ a move she said would help break gridlock in Washington by curbing the ability of Republicans to block votes.

Warren had said Senators who want to filibuster should be required to stand on the Senate floor and speak continuously instead of merely threatening to do so.

2. She's a rare senator who actually wants to get good stuff done

Not a whiff of triangulation from that one, yet.

3. K&R We need more like her..

Thank You! "Warren said in a statement Thursday that she's disappointed the changes aren't more extensive, but added that "some change is better than no change at all."
