    In a Wall Street Journal op-ed published July 15, DC Public Policy Specialist Robert Dove warned lawmakers against eliminating the filibuster, touting the protection the “much maligned and misunderstood procedure” provides against “quick and often hasty” decisions. “Senators should stand back a bit and consider what their role should be,” Mr. Dove urged. “It is not to transform themselves into the House of Representatives but rather to protect the rights of the minority and to tack against the winds of fleeting opinion.”
