The silly, inefficient and even paranoid US Senate filibuster rules have — depending on perspective — obstructed countless worthy appointments and bills or saved the nation from destrucive bills and appointments. Now two noobs, MA's Elizabeth Warren and ME's Angus King say enough. Both have pledged to reform the process.

As the filibuster is not a law, "merely" rules the Senate agrees to by majority vote at the start of each two-year session, filibuster would be mildly or radically changed in January.

We'll talk about what's likely and what's possible.
