83. I think you are right
I didn't really understand the filibuster rule until now.

And Lieberman is not a Democrat. So we had 59 at most.

Just shows how uninformed we can all be. Now we know that if we want progressivism, we have to get the Senate and find a way to get more progressives elected. And that involves persuading the voters, especially in the states with lower populations, who get disproportionate representation in the Senate.
