Harry Reid, Against Filibuster Reform Before Being For It

The Senate Republican Conference has released this video, showing that Senate majority leader Harry Reid, a Democrat, was against filibuster reform before being for it:
Reid was opposed to the measures when he led the Senate minority, but is considering the changes as the majority leader.
Republicans, who were largely for the reforms (when they were in the majority) but are now against them, contend that changing the filibuster rules will marginalize their power in the Senate.
