The Creative Stubbornness of Harry Reid
TIME - Joe Klein - : The Creative Stubbornness of Harry Reid: "The Republican majority has now located the limits of the possible, and it has been guided to that ledge by the creative intransigence of Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid, whose control over his donkeys has been as striking as G.O.P. Senate leader Bill Frist's failure to herd his elephants. Reid has been clever and very, very tough. His opening bid was opposition to President Bush's Social Security semiprivatization plan, which proved a congenial place for Democrats to congregate. Social Security reform now appears to be moribund. The Democrats hung together on the budget last week, luring moderate Republicans to their cause on Medicaid, education and grants for cities. And it appears likely that they will hang together on the next big crisis—the Republican attempt to stop Democratic filibusters against some of the President's more injudicious judicial appointments."
