      This is always the refrain with Harry Reid.  We just saw what he actually did - he handed over the Senate to McConnell.

      All McConnell has to do is survive being primaried by teahadists who think he's too much of a (get this) CENTRIST.  If McConnell survives that, I expect him to replace Reid as Majority Leader because the Democrats will have lost the Senate and probably won't regain the House, either.

        Senators including the two that unfortunately represent me.  I have said this before, it is time for the two CA Senators to retire.  We need some new blood for the state that will become the first minority majority in six months.
