Strategically and tactically, getting rid of the filibuster favors the dems on most issues in the long run. GOP just has better party unity and was just a lot better at sustaining a filibuster. Moderate Dems are just too willing to compromise, moderate GOPs are scared of primaries from right wing. People talk about the threat of packing the courts with prolife judges, but the GOP was already doing that.
