64. Or Democratic Senators that realize that majorities come and go.

That explains things quite nicely with few other assumptions.

We all discussed these aspects of this issue for the past four years here. A possible future GOP majority was always an undeniable cloud on the horizon. We've all seen it happen more than once, even the youngest DUers must acknowledge that fact.

So why now do some DUers seem so surprised and hurt when the filibuster still essentially stands with only minor changes?

It is not because the Democrats caved; it is because they may be in the minority again.
