    but it might be from Reid.
    This nomination has torn up St Ronnie's 11th commandment and instantly demonstrated the GOP's, uh, lack of commitment to their agreements (is that delicate enough?).
    This allows Reid to go nuclear and change Senate Rules with a simple majority as per the "gentlemen's agreement".
    That is, Reid can override the members of his own caucus on this.
    This is why we need to keep the pressure on him if at all possible.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!
