    Nothing really needs to change about the cloture rules if Reid (or whoever in the future is the majority leader)would actually force members to stand up and speak for hours on end; as opposed to withdrawing legislation at the mere threat of a filibuster. That’s the main problem in my opinion. That being said, it would be nice to see actual cloture reform.
