Krugman versus Krugman on the filibuster. 

March 29, 2005, Democrats are the minority in the Senate:
the big step by extremists will be an attempt to eliminate the filibuster...
February 7, 2010, Democrats are the majority in the Senate:
the way the Senate works is no longer consistent with a functioning government. Senators themselves should recognize this fact and push through changes in those rules, including eliminating or at least limiting the filibuster. This is something they could and should do, by majority vote, on the first day of the next Senate session.
