Lots of talk from Democratic senators today about reforming Senate rules to lessen the crippling effect (depending on whether you’re the one wielding it) of the filibuster. Harry Reid says it time for a change. Chuck Schumer says he’s going to hold hearings on the issue. One caveat: the senators are making the remarks at what they’re touting as a “Progressive Media Summit,” so they’re pitching to a particular audience today.
