I agree. This isn't about winning a political battle and while

I think 4409 makes a lot of good points concerning what Rand 'accomplished' in that arena, he is also pointing out that Rand really didn't change anything concerning the law.

HOWEVER, I don't think that it's a small thing that he had 13 hours on national TV that caught on and drew attention from all over the world. 4409 knows that it's more about US than it is about the politicians, and I think he appreciates how many people heard things on the Senate floor while Rand was speaking they have never heard before in their lifetime. I certainly haven't.

The victory is in the discussion it has caused. I sent out emails at 7 pm and 10 pm central that Rand was still going. The next day my neighbors son who was visiting questioned why I was interested in this! He's around 40 years old! Maybe he checked into it.
