Is the mud hardening?


Not likely.  Nonetheless, there’s a rumor that Senator Mudpuddle may actually start attempting a little caucus discipline:

Now that they have 60, Reid and Durbin need to remind Dem members that when your Leader files cloture, you support him. . .

From what I hear, they started delivering that message, if a softer version of it, earlier today.

“Softer,” yes.  My money would be on much, much softer.

If true, however, and if Reid follows through on it, it’s exactly the kind of thing I’ve been describing re the filibuster.  The problem isn’t the system; it’s that the people controlling the system don’t want to work it.  Maybe, just maybe, that’s changing.  A little.  Slowly.

We’ll see.
