Yeah, but politically...

...the democrats, in their absence, shot themselves in the foot and really launched Rand Paul. If Rand was standing amidst Democrats in that chamber, the Republican establishment wouldn't be gushing over him at all.

If Rand beats Hillary in '16, and I believe he's the only one capable of doing so, then the Democrats should look all the way back to this filibuster as a blown opportunity.
