Fast-track process for passing a health-overhaul bill?

So it appears that this fast track process is used in the "budget-reconciliation process to pass health legislation, which would allow a bill to pass in the Senate with only 51 votes rather than 60."

Yet, Sebelius goes on to say, that "there was an interest in Congress in 'not taking tools off the table prematurely, but being very dedicated to a bipartisan process and bipartisan bill.' "

How exactly is requiring less votes for a majority bipartisan? Do they even listen to themselves when they speak?
