Reconciliation

By Ezra Klein

Recap: Will Gene Sperling replace Larry Summers? Also: What the Tea Party wants from the Constitution; and should Obama be a better loser?

Elsewhere:

1) "Nothing much happened in 2010."

2) Benjamin Wallace-Wells is a really fine writer.

3) How Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell could preempt filibuster reform.

4) Tomorrow's a federal holiday, so no Wonkbook, and blogging is likely to be slow.

Ezra, I just noticed your Constitutional musing made it onto The Drudge Report. You have to admit that gives you a lot more exposure than MSNBC. Congratulations! You are headed for the big time.

--*Tomorrow's a federal holiday, so no Wonkbook, and blogging is likely to be slow.*--

You're a defacto government employee, Klein, so enjoy the "free" day.

"You are headed for the big time."

But not in a good way. Tu eres un idiota y los periodicos lo comprenden.

LOL msoja

Regarding filibuster reform it's safe to say that anything Reid negotiates is going to suck. I mean, the people who have been fighting for this all along don't even have a seat at the table.

Wrongfuldeath, my point is that the only worse than bad publicity is none at all. I understand ratings and the Drudge Report gets more hits than a particular MSNBC show gets viewers. BTW, if you are going to call me an idiot, please use the masculine form. OK puta!

Maybe you could use the time off to read that old Constitution. Might do you some good.

Ezra,


Happy New Year to you and yours. As a suggestion for a New Year's resolution, you may want to discuss the actual cost of healthcare and the driving factors in it a little bit more becuase building up to 2014 and beyond that's going to become more and more pressing.

Should Obama be a better loser? We knew he was a loser when we elected him. What difference does it make whether he's better or worser?
