    Reid is getting ready for the next battle.  But if you ask Reid would he rather have Miers or lose the next battle what will he answer?  My guess is that Reid recommended Miers because he ACTUALLY did think she was better than a lot of alternatives.  My guess is also that Reid is a realist that thinks the chances of the Dems winning a nomination battle are slim so he was probably pretty happy when the President took into consideration his input.  I think his answer will depend on who is nominated.

    My overall view is that those who believe that Reid pushed Miers so she'd fail and GW would be embarassed are deluding themselves.  I don't think Reid is that Machiavellian.  I think he's a straighter shooter.
