Barone Says No Filibuster-Proof Senate
by

At least not technically. Michael Barone predicts that the Democrats will end up with 58 Senate seats after next Tuesday’s elections, though even that will probably be enough to stop most filibusters. (Remember that the safest Republican with a serious Democratic opponent is Susan Collins, who will be helpful on some filibusters but not many.) The only race where I disagree with him is Norm Coleman in Minnesota. I wouldn’t guarantee a Coleman loss, but I think his chances are weaker than Gordon Smith’s in Oregon.  So if I’m right and John Sununu doesn’t pull off an upset, that would leave the Democrats at 59 seats and the Republicans in pretty much the same situation of occasional filibustering.
