My hunch is that they fear a reversal of fortune in the future when they may want the filibuster rules the way that they are.

This is what drives me nuts. What do they think would be the 1st thing a Republican-majority Senate would do? If your 1st response was anything other than "eliminate the ability of the minority party to filibuster", please go back and reread all news stories of the past decade.
