Time to revisit filibuster reform?

Last year, facing unprecedented Republican obstruction to the president's agenda, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid came to the Senate floor with a big admission: "These two young, fine senators said it was time to change the rules of the Senate, and we didn't. They were right. The rest of us were wrong -- or most of us, anyway. What a shame ... I am almost embarrassed,” he said, referring to two Democrats who wanted to curb the power of the filibuster.
