    Reid is a political genius but whenever you play with armed hand grenades, there is still a margin of error...  I don't know what kind of info Reid actually has but I hope that this was well thought-out and, even better, well-sourced, and not an off-the-cuff statement.  Would hate to see this blow up in our collective faces in October.

    Having said that, despite all the hatred for Reid and Pelosi here, they are experts of the art of the possible and they would not risk their leadership roles on a half-baked scheme.  There's a "there" there.

    Odds are, the hand grenade will eventually blow up in the Romney camp when the whole country is talking about Romney's tax dodging or his tax returns throughout the autumn campaigning season.  But if it blows up on our side... yikes.
