Well, the filibuster survived a close brush with death last night, as the Senate eked out a win on cloture for a short-term debt limit hike.

That means our visit with Eli Zupnick of Fix Our Senate was particularly well-timed. And we’ll probably get another chance to check in with him again soon, since we’ll be right back in this mess by early December, if not before, whether over the debt limit, a government shutdown, voting rights, or any of a dozen other critical items on the agenda.

Speaking of the debt limit, how about this creative filibuster workaround?
