It was more important to Mitch, in the end, to have an extra seat on committees that do not enact legislation, and to avoid being called Minority Leader.

Now the Dems can pass whatever they want thru the House, the Senate and the President will sign. Anything. No more filibuster.

They had a great imperial inauguration, with about 50,000 troops standing at attention on the Mall. All hail the Emperor and Vice-Emperor!

This historically important development happened while everyone is distracted by the impeachment trial which is ultimately irrelevant. Trump won't want to run when he's 78 and he won't be permitted to get that far anyway.

I heard it reported today that Senator Sinema (red state Dem) rejected the idea of nuking the filibuster.

So she might vote against the procedural change? Might be some hope then. Unless Romney / Murkowski / some other usual suspect votes with the Dems.
