Yesterday, I made fund of the fact that little Luke Russert thought that Harry Reid was the new liberal standard bearer because he got a vote to the floor. But this might actually do it:
"In tomorrow's Washington Post, David Broder, their distinguished senior columnist, certainly not a political conservative, expresses his reservation as a citizen about the steps that we could be about to take," McConnell said.
Reid couldn't have been less impressed. "To focus on a man who has been retired for many years and writes a column once in a while is not where we should be."
Update: Democrat Mary Landrieu just announced that she's generously going to allow the historic Democratic health care reform bill to come to the floor. That's very kind of her.
So it looks like we're going to get a vote. The question now is what the bill is going to look like after all the amendments.
... it never ends ...
