  •  Obama didn't pick his opponent and neither did (6+ / 0-)

    Reid. Both opponents were or are being picked by the GOP's batshit-crazy base. It's pretty amazing. I really thought they would have learned something from 2010 and hated Obama enough that they would line up behind the person most likely to defeat him.

    If there is no accountability for those who authorized torture, we can no longer say that we are a nation of laws, not men.

    •  Reid's team was instrumental (0+ / 0-)

      in hammering Lowden over Chickens for Checkups. It would not have turned into the huge national issue it became without them. (For weeks, they even had her appearances tracked by a dude in a chicken costume.) I think it's pretty safe to say that Reid sunk Lowden, and she would have been his most formidable challenger.
