Democrat Reid elected Senate majority leader
10 minutes ago
U.S. Sen. Harry Reid (news, bio, voting record), a moderate Nevada Democrat, was elected by colleagues on Tuesday as U.S. Senate majority leader for the 110th Congress that will convene in January.
Reid, like most fellow Democrats, favors a phased withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq, a major issue in last week's elections that saw Democrats win control of the Senate and House of Representatives from President George W. Bush's Republicans.
Reid has served the past two years as Senate minority leader. He replaced Tom Daschle, who was ousted by voters in his home state of South Dakota in 2004 after being denounced as "the chief obstructionist" to Bush's conservative agenda.
Democrats also elected Dick Durbin of Illinois as assistant Senate majority leader. He has been Senate assistant minority leader since January 2005.

For the MSM almost all Dems are moderates and almost all Republicans are extremists.
well, at least dingy harry is pro-second amendment..and has fought gun laws in the past....at least that is...something.
Senator "Land Deal" Ried, Majority Leader.
Now it's time to indict him.
I thought he was going down for illegal land deals.
I guess some animals are more equal then others.
a moderate wouldn't brag about killing the Patriot Act, among his other transgressions.
An extremist partisan liberal WOULD
Now I'm sure than MJ Reid will remind the American public about the values that his Blue Dog Demos ran on...that enabled him to become MJ..
Harry "The Body" Reid
Nobody takes office until january...
the dimwits do not have a 'majority' yet.
I agree... Bring it on... I'm hungering for some political 'bloodsport'. What's good for the goose must also by definition be good for the, um, Demo/Commie, huh...
This is the start of Pelosi's "most ethical congress."
Soon, even Mexico will be better.
I'm suprised that Reid was made Majority Leader considering his involvement in that shady land deal.
I don't understand how this can happen now. The new Congress hasn't convened. The Congress now is not a 'Rat majority. They've got some new members coming in who haven't taken office yet, and so can't vote on things like this. Is it some kind of symbolic gesture, a sort of rub your nose in it deal? Wouldn't surprise me if it were. Can't expect much class from a bunch of 'Rats.
What if they don't have the Majority when January rolls around?????????
Was there any doubt that dirty hairy would lead the senate?
None in my view...it pays to be crooked (clintons); it pays to do things behind the back (clintons); it pays to lies (clintons); it pays to do crimes but not the time (clintons)
Good example those clintons left their party isn't it? And there are some out there in our country that think that another Clinton is what this country needs...uuuuuurrrrrggggg
I bet Willy Jefferson is even breathing a sigh of relief these days.
Let the craft and corruption begin. American voters will be the losers, big time.
>>>I don't understand how this can happen now. >>>
I don't either. This is not the Congress that will be in place in January. How can that Congress elect him when they aren't there yet?
Funny, I thought the MSM elected Reid the Senate Majority Leader after the other Senate Majority Leaders such as Tom Daschle and George Mitchell stepped down in the face of annoying Republicans that actually thought they won elections /sarc
You can't rely upon blue dog Dems from the south.
Don't expect that to go anywhere. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
"I'm suprised that Reid was made Majority Leader considering his involvement in that shady land deal."
That's what sealed the deal! Can't be a RAT leader without a little graft and corruption on your resume!
Don't forget... Harry is interested in investigating the Republican's "culture of corruption" but that doesn't apply to the Democrats. So, he's off the hook and the gutless Republicans let him get away with it.
I have resorted to watching the Food Channel because I can't stomach hearing Dingy Harry or tight faced Peolosi on the news. I used to come home and switch on Fox but I just can't watch-it makes me sick every time I realize what stupid people in the country have done. Kiss your tax cuts good bye. It was nice while it lasted!
The MSM continues to push its lies to keep the dems in power.
Wow I'm shocked.
Think Nancy Pelosi will be speaker of the House?
Point taken. To the rats, Corruption is a virtue, Not a vice.
There is no such thing as a Blue Dog Democrat. Dims are liberals...look at how they vote. They CALL themselves conservative when they run and want to run so they can get votes. They are LIBERALS. THey want the GOP to THINK they are conservative...just watch what they do, NOT SAY!
Yeah, he sounds like Pee Wee Herman but he is a crook instead of a pervert. Not even sure about that these day!
You're right about that. The other reason however, Is that they want the MSM to like them, Which will never happen.
Next thing you know, those "conservative Democrats" in the House will be pulling us out of Iraq and raising taxes.
As bad as Harry is...I'm just glad it's not Durbin who's #1. I can't stomach that guy and it's bad enough to see him in the #2 chair.
Yeah, to the right of Yahoo (aptly named bunch of yahoos)...
Nope,olde Willy knows it's in the hands of the FBI and it's only a matter of time!
There are no more liberals in the Democrat Party, didn't you know that?
I wonder what they are going to call Pelosi.
They are going to have a hard time selling that to the voters the next time around.
This is too good to be true, Reid in the Senate and Murtha in the House. Both have ethical issues and both could end up under indictment and really embarrassing the party.
What was that Pelosi said about being the most "ethical" Congress ever?
Without the ethical issue it is still good to have Reid and Murtha as their standard-bearer. They are both pathetic speakers who step on their own dick all the time.
This is great! Thanks DemoRats for the help.
No! Not Harry the halo!!!! Would this man lie????
That's right, but who cares about the law? Who cares about right and wrong? Heck, who from that lot of Libocrats cares for the U.S.?
They are SO going to screw up this country...
When your perspective is from the left that is how things look.
They can (and will) be dragged into it, even though they will struggle mightily to hide and confuse and obstruct... The right headline on Drudge can move mountains...
No surprise....Good luck! Your going to need it! It will not be as easy as you think.
