Today, re: the so-called nuclear option, Senate Republicans preserved the right to surrender in the future.—

Senate leadership today might have reached a compromise that will avert Majority Leader Harry Reid’s threat to use the “nuclear option,” but it was Texas Sen. Ted Cruz who dropped a bomb this evening. The Senate was saved, and Reid expressed his hope that Democrats and Republicans will once again work together to further the Democrats’ agenda.
We retain the right to change the rules if necessary. But this is a new day in the Senate, and I hope we’ll be able to work together.—

Back to business as usual, then?
Remember this guy?
