I wanted to see Reid go down in flames but there are some definite advantages to having him still in place:
1) he’s an ineffective, fossilized leader who will be the “face” of so much that’s wrong with the Demagogues over the next 2, 4, 6 years
2) getting to a bare majority in the Senate with RINOs like the sob sisters from Maine and Mr. Grahamnesty holding key votes would have been worse than useless on many issues
3) related to #1, Reid is utterly incapable of leading any movement or ‘selling’ liberal ideas on a national scale
4) we need to replace a lot of ‘Rat senators in 2012 before we can do anything effective in the Senate — the seats that were up this year strongly favored the Demagogues overall and it’s better to let Reid flail about for two more years as a castrated Majority Leader
I’m just looking on the bright side - we got rid of Pelosi and we still Harry to kick around.
You make some good points.
