"Does he know we already did that?" Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid quipped when asked about a comment President Barack Obama made Wednesday about changing the Senate's filibuster rule.
Obama told a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee audience in New York that changes are needed to "how a filibuster works." "We have made significant progress with regard to judges, tremendous progress," Reid said. "We have ambassadors that should be all over the world. These are people who have worked hard, and finally get a chance to be an ambassador. Republicans don't allow votes on these," Reid said.
