Harry Reid and the Magic 60

I know this has been pointed out a few times in several places now, but after reading it again at Politico this morning, I'm saying it again.

The need for 60 in the senate is misdirection.

58 would be enough, as there are surely a few moderate republicans to be swayed on any piece of legislation, and if they can't be swayed, most likely the legislation under consideration has lost the conservative Democrats and Lieberdouche.

The repetition of the fallacy reminds me of the 2007 debate over war funding. Harry Reid hasn't impressed me so far, and if he can't do anything substantial with 58, he need to go.
