Al Franken won, and the Dems have 60 votes in the Senate. But ABC News' Rick Klein points out that gaining this supermajority isn't everything it's cracked up to be.

“Sixty is a magic number, but it isn't,” said Franken, D-Minn.

(Kos says it all: “Psst, Harry? You've got 60 Dems. . . . No more excuses.”) 

What 60 most definitely doesn’t change: The need for bipartisanship, and for public support to grow if the Obama agenda is to pass.
