10. Dems obviously don't have ALL of the power, which is what you said,
otherwise, there would be no hold up by this senator and that senator as far as Nominations, filubusters, etc.... but you knew that.

As for what is "Solid"......That's up to debate, and based on the definition below,
far as I can see, those I highlighted don't really correspond with what the Dems
have in my humble opinion.
