19 Votes Short

Well, it's over. I was wrong in thinking that the leadership would try to avoid this train wreck, but they moved forward and fell short by 19 votes. Haven't seen which Republicans voted against cloture, but the numbers indicate that more than just a few moderates joined in opposition.

It's be nice to think that the screeds and chicken littling on both sides will now ebb and the actual merits of the issue can be discussed, but I expect the rhetoric to just get nastier and the battle moves to the states, which of course was part of the master plan all along.

For today at least, the system works.
