I voted for Chuck Schumer. He'd be the best for the job as well IMO.

I think you should change the thread title from "If" to "When".

Reid seems to have totally lost what political acumen he had.

I still think Reid will win.  I don't want him to, but I get the sense that he will prevail in the end.

Obama High's debate team:

"Now let me be clear...I...I...um...uh...now let me be clear.  I strongly condemn the affirmative in the strongest possible terms, and I am closely monitoring their arguments.  Let me be clear on this."

I said that Obama would prefer, Sen Dick Durbin to either Reid or Schumer.  He may not interfere, but people in the communications department will have a say, if and when that time may come.

Reid, Lincoln and Specter are not ideal candidates.  We would have been in a more ideal situation had we had better candidates besides Sestak.  I don't favor neither of them coming back.

In terms of obsticles to getting Obama's agenda passed:

Democrats losing a relatve progressive vote like Reid's from their 60 seat majority > Reid's questionable effectiveness as majority leader.

I don't blame inititives stalling in the senate on Reid half as much as I blame conservative Democrats like Ben Nelson, Lincoln, Lieberman etc., and not one tenth as much as I do Mitch McConnell and the other 39 senate republicans (with a 10% exemption for the Maine sisters). Thus, while I'm less than thrilled with Reid as leader, as far as next year's senate race Reid > x1000 any Nevada Republican.

Except maybe Wayne Newton, baby.

But I can think of ways to retaliate.

Knowing you, we're sure you can.

But hopefully cooler heads will dissuade you from vandalizing synagogues.
