26. So the Dems basically would not vote

to untie their own hands. When the repubs fillibuster again it will be their own fault. The Dems in the senate have this capacity of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. Why did Reid have to sit down and negotiate with the minority party and treat then as if they were the majority? He may have not had the votes but I have watched Reid for years and he has to be one of the weakest Senate majority "leaders" I've seen.
