Sixty Votes

Now that former Senator Norm Coleman (R-Minnesota) belatedly conceded after losing a legal challenge in a unanimous decision issued by Minnesota's Supreme Court, the Democratic Party is running out of excuses. Should Senators Robert Byrd and Ted Kennedy return to vote in the fall, President Barack Obama and the Democrats in the senate should have the votes to override any Republican filibuster and they should have the votes to pass the bulk of and the most significant if not all of the progressive agenda items they ran on. The Republicans can no longer block any legislation unless some Democrats join them.
