rep Clyburn seem pretty optimistic about converging on civil rights legislation

And getting Manchin and others to do a filibuster carve out for it. I am glad to hear that. I trust him implicitly and he has once again set in motion what might be the needed push to get it done.
ironically, Abbott may have helped by escalating the situation in Texas to the point that Texas dems had to leave the state. they are now in DC giving interviews, talking to legislators and adding even more pressure.
The president is also using his bully pulpit delivering a forceful speech on voting rights.
I really think all of this is going to yield results. So now is the time to support and get behind our democratic reps instead of berating them being impatient. I know itís frustrating but we are witnessing history in motion.

5. Would a carve out for Constitutional issues need

Parliamentarian approval? Or could Senate Democrats just change the rule themselves?
